It can be difficult to find suitable teaching resources, which has been seen by the Ministry of Education as they roll out a new and much more effective way to find them. Tāhūrangi is a new digital home for curriculum content, teaching resources and news, making it easier and quicker for educators to find the perfect resource.
In addition to its resource space, Tāhūrangi also features an interactive community forum where educators can exchange ideas, collaborate on lesson plans, and share best practices. Tāhūrangi offers real-time updates on educational trends and policy changes, keeping educators well-informed and prepared for the education industry. The platform’s user-friendly interface ensures that educators, whether new or experienced, can navigate it with ease, promoting inclusivity and diversity in teaching approaches.
Who will Tāhūrangi benefit?
Tāhūrangi has hundreds of resources and content that can support various people in the education industry, this includes:
● Te Whāriki: He Whāriki mātauranga mō ngā mokopuna o Aotearoa Early Childhood Curriculum
● Te Marautanga o Aotearoa
● The New Zealand Curriculum
● And soon, Te Whāriki a Te Kōhanga Reo.
Parents and caregivers are also able to access the online centre to support their children/ākonga with their learning.
To further enhance their Tāhūrangi experience, users can log in using their Education Sector Logon (ESL) credentials. This unlocks a range of personalised features that cater to individual preferences:
– Users can create and save personalised resource collections, allowing for easy access and reference in the future. This feature helps educators streamline their planning and teaching efforts.
– Collaboration is made easy with the ability to share resource collections with other Tāhūrangi users who have profiles on the platform. This feature fosters knowledge exchange and collaborative learning.
– Tāhūrangi offers the option to save language preferences, enabling users to tailor their experience to their linguistic needs, ensuring a more personalised and accessible experience.
Impact on Existing Resource Websites
In the future, Tāhūrangi will serve as the central repository for curriculum-related content, effectively replacing TKI, Kauwhata Reo, and Te Whāriki Online. Users will receive advance notice regarding changes in access to these existing websites, providing ample time to transition to Tāhūrangi.
