At Ngākōroa School we recognise the incredible potential that digital devices have to support teaching and learning. We have considered both research and our own personal experiences, so we are best-equipped to integrate digital tools into learning as our school grows.

We will use these ICT tools to:

  • Support the implementation of the new Digital Technologies Curriculum;
  • Promote ‘Anytime, Anywhere Learning’ across the curriculum;
  • Promote a culture of creating content rather than consuming content;
  • Provide seamless communication and celebrations of learning between home and school;
  • Support our tamariki to understand their place as global citizens;
  • Teach students to become responsible digital citizens.

BYOD - ‘Bring Your Own Device’ in Years 6-8

BYOD means that Year 6-8 ākonga are able to bring a device (Chromebook) to school and back each day - like a regular stationery item. 

This will give staff and ākonga greater access to important learning tools which will support our learning approaches at Ngākōroa School. 

There will also be a number of school supplied Chromebooks in each classroom for the use of those who choose not to provide a device for their child, meaning no student will be disadvantaged through this programme.
