Mō Raranga Matihiko

The Raranga Matihiko programme is led by Te Papa in conjunction with our partner museums Waitangi Treaty Grounds and Auckland Art Gallery. The programme was delivered from 2018, with it's final year of delivery in 2021.

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.

National Mentoring programme

In addition to this, we will be facilitating a national mentoring programme for teachers which will focus on Aotearoa New Zealand Histories and curriculum integration.

Our partners

In 2021, Te Papa has partnered with Waitangi Treaty Grounds and Auckland Art Gallery to deliver this programme in the Northland, Auckland and Wellington regions.

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