In consultation with CS Unplugged and in partnership with Apple, Cyclone is offering free workshops around New Zealand to support schools to take the plunge into the new Digital Technologies strand of the NZ Curriculum. Special attention will be given to how the Apple solution can support this new strand.

On the roadshow, Kimberley Walker - Cyclone’s Digital Learning Specialist, will run an overview of what the Digital Technologies strand involves, how this will affect our teachers and also provide some ideas for what it may look like with learners from Year 1-8.
