Flicking the switch: taking digital technology education further

Unattributed, New Zealand Education Gazette, Nov 21, 2016
Commentary by Stephen Downes

This article describes some projects that support the new local digital technologies curriculum in New Zealand. The program depends on community involvement and "to boost our students’ skills and confidence to identify local and global problems and opportunities, and design and develop digital solutions in response." As is always the case with projects like this, each of them has a local champion (or two) driving them forward. We don't say enough about them (probably because there are some in most every community) but most of the work in ed tech would be impossible without them.
