About Raranga Matihiko:

The Raranga Matihiko programme is led by Te Papa with our two partner sites Waitangi Treaty Grounds and Auckland Art Gallery. Raranga Matihiko is in its fourth year of operations.  For the first three years, it was funded 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 museum-based programmes 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.  It focuses on curriculum integration and supports kaiako, ākonga and whānau learning together.

The programme is provided at no cost to the school.

The Raranga Matihiko He Marau Pāhekoheko programme is a new option for 2021 and aims to support teachers to implement Aotearoa New Zealand histories, the revised technology/hangarau learning areas in a cross-curricula approach.
