About
Mō Raranga Matihiko

The Raranga Matihiko programme is led by Te Papa as part of the Ministry of Education’s Digital Technologies for All Equity Fund. The Equity Fund supports the introduction of new digital technologies learning for all schools and kura across Aotearoa.

Raranga Matihiko delivers innovative digital technologies to those with limited digital learning opportunities, while increasing access to national and local exhibitions and collections. Throughout the programme, students solve real-world problems, while enriching their knowledge of their communities and regions.

Through accessing national and local collections, learners can co-create and curate their own learning using digital technologies. The solutions developed will be shared using a range of digital media.

This programme is provided at no cost to the school. This includes transport to and from the museum.

Our Approach
Te Huarahi Whainga

A bespoke approach

No single programme is identical. Each class has a bespoke programme plan designed for their learners.

This ensures the needs of the learners are met, and provides support as they develop digital fluency skills in a cross-curricular approach. This includes building students’ understandings of computational thinking, digital citizenship, and literacy.

Building confidence

Concurrently, we will work with teachers to build their confidence in working with digital technologies, and we welcome whānau, family, and community involvement.

Sharing stories

A key aspect of our approach is that the museums will share stories captured by programme participants with the public by digital and/or physical display (with agreement from the participants and kāhui ako).

Our partners

In 2020, Te Papa has partnered with Waitangi Treaty Grounds, Waikato Museum, and MTG in the Hawkes Bay to deliver this programme in the Waikato, Northland, Hawke’s Bay and Wellington regions. In addition to this, we will be facilitating leadership programmes in the Auckland region.

The programme will be designed and
delivered by Learning Innovation
Specialists across the four sites.
