  • Ngā Hangarau Matihiko i ngā Kura Ara Reo Māori | Māori-medium ICT Research Report 2016: Digital Technologies

    Since 1993, research on the use of digital technologies in schools has been undertaken every one to two years. In 2014 a nationwide study of schools was undertaken by Research New Zealand. Researchers of that study reported a lack of confidence in the data and findings in relation to Māori-medium settings due to the small number of Māori-medium respondents. To address this gap, in March 2016, the Ministry of Education (the Ministry) engaged Haemata Ltd to conduct a survey specifically on how Māori-medium kura are using digital technologies.
