Home Learning | Papa Kāinga TV – supporting teachers and learners


Home Learning | Papa Kāinga TV is continuing to support children and young people’s learning – whether they are at school or home.

New content is being added over the coming days, including Anika Moa leading the daily waiata (started 18 May), digital technology, and projects for junior and senior learners by Raranga Matihiko and the Learning Team at Te Papa Tongarewa (starting 28 May).

Teachers can now access details of the upcoming week’s lessons on the Learning From Home website so they can plan ahead, and incorporate the lessons into their teaching programmes.

Lesson plans will also be available through the site, which teachers can use and reuse to support teaching and learning.

The Covid-19 situation has highlighted that learning can take place anytime, anywhere – not just in the classroom, but at home, online, and outside, and in any blend of these contexts.

The lessons that have been developed and presented by teachers for Home Learning | Papa Kāinga TV will become part of a bank of resources that teachers, parents and learners will continue to have access to for some time to come.
