Manurewa Central School

Digital Technologies



Manurewa Central School is a well resourced digital school where students have access to digital tools that are utilised to support the New Zealand curriculum.

Each class has an active panel or interactive T.V. to support in class learning and we pride ourselves on being a 'have your own device' school. Students are not required to supply any devices.

Students have access to a variety of tools including chromebooks, iPads, ICT suite, robots - sphero, beebots and Lego Mindstorms.

We are working towards developing knowledge and skills in our students to be able to utilise the correct digital tool for the task.

The tools used in our different year levels are:

  • Year 5/6 students are 1:1 Chromebooks

  • Year 3/4 have a mix of iPads and Chromebooks to incorporate into learning

  • Year 1/2 students have access to iPads to support learning

All students have the opportunity to utilise our well equipped ICT suite during class times and this is also available at lunchtimes to our older students.

At Manurewa Central school we hope to develop digital fluency in our students.

Our vision is for our tamariki who:

  • exercise learner agency by choosing effective technologies to articulate their ideas beyond what is possible using alternative methods

  • use technology to enhance their understanding of the wider world to better understand themselves and their place in the world

  • create new knowledge and content through exploration of different digital technologies

  • confidently explain and justify as they share their learning and knowledge

  • use digital technologies to safely and responsibly interact with others as global citizens

  • are open-minded learners who use digital tools to further their learning
