TENZ Wednesday Webinar Series:

Technology Education New Zealand (TENZ) is a non-profit professional, collaborative association, promoting and supporting all levels of technology education in New Zealand.

TENZ is organised by teachers for teachers and our aim is to enhance the learning and teaching of technology by creating a well informed, well connected, supportive, and sustainable professional community that has a strong voice and provides effective advocacy for technology education.

Each month TENZ hosts a FREE webinar for educators (every Wednesday in the 4th week of the month, 4 to 5pm). Webinars explore and introduce a wide variety of projects, ideas, technology education updates for teachers to utilise in their own classrooms and schools.

This month, the webinar showcases Product Design Resources.

Introducing Product Design in a world of woodwork and metalwork; project ideas which include a range of skills, manufacturing process and mixed materials which will stimulate and engage independent learning and problem-solving. I will share my experiences and what I feel should be our focus for Tamariki of today. Looking at student career pathways; creating a 7-year plan from year 7-13; the importance of teaching the design process; human design and our impact on the world as designers and teachers. Concluded with a range of project ideas which can be adapted for most year levels.
