The Waitangi Treaty Grounds is one of only three locations nationwide to be selected by Te Papa Tongarewa Museum of New Zealand to deliver the digital learning programme Raranga Matihiko - Weaving Digital Futures.

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

No two programmes will be identical, each class having one designed for them, ensuring their needs are met, and providing support to each child as they develop digital fluency skills in a cross-curricular approach. 

That includes building students' understandings of computational thinking, digital citizenship and literacy.
