Think Tech

Secondary Futures is launching a new website with an online policy debate

“The ThinkTech site will be launched at Te Papa, Tuesday 31 March at 7.30pm with New Zealand's first policy debate, on-line and live. Radio New Zealand's Sean Plunket will facilitate an informal discussion: 'How will technology change the way we live and learn in 20 years time?' You can send in comments and questions, live by registering now.”

“ThinkTech is a New Zealand first – it’s a tool we’re calling a D-logue because it is set up to create a public policy discussion in the form of wide-ranging debate where all voices are equally heard and that can be owned by the participants in the debate.

Anyone can share their ideas and knowledge, upload reports or videos, join meetings, challenge thinking, chat to each other, and network - to have a dialogue.

Our goal is to share New Zealander’s vision for the Place of Technology in schooling by modelling the vision: that while the scope of new technologies defies prediction, they will undoubtedly have an impact on education, on living and on working. People need to keep up with these changes, talk to each other and think about what they might mean for Aotearoa and how that fits with our values.”
