Digital Learning

At Tai Tapu School we use digital technologies to enhance our learning and to open up new, exciting opportunities to be innovative thinkers.

Students have ready access to a range of digital tools across the school. As well as offering a Bring Your Own Device programme from Years 3-8, we also have a range of school provided iPads and Chromebooks for our students to use.

To assist us in becoming self managed learners we utilise the Google Suite alongside Hapara Teacher Dashboard to provide our students with anytime, anywhere access to their learning and a wealth of multimedia online resources to inspire!  These tools allow our students to be closely monitored when engaging online, and promote collaboration.

We pride ourselves as being a community of innovative, creative thinkers and the Apple iPad suite of apps provides our students with the platforms to create digital content for not only their peers, but a global community. From iMovie creation, to Stop Motion Animation and iBooks and Website creation our students are constantly building their ‘toolkit’ of apps and working alongside each other to discover new tools.

In 2017 a group of our Year 7-8 girls were New Zealand finalists in the Search for the Next Tech Girl Superhero worldwide competition where they had to design and build their own mobile app to meet a need in their community!  We have some enthusiastic young programmers in our school community who have recently set up their own lunchtime coding and robotics clubs. The school has recently purchased robot kits in response to this increased interest and our teachers are looking to introduce elements of coding and computational thinking across all levels.
