Elevating Educational Excellence

Te Papatipu Matihiko (TPM) in a collaborative venture with Digital Natives Academy (DNA), are excited to unveil a suite of Professional Learning and Development (PLD) programmes and an exclusive esports membership tailored for educators. This initiative is designed to bridge the gap between traditional education and the digital era, focusing on the incorporation of Te Ao Māori and technological advancements in school settings.

Esports Membership: Empowering Educators and Students

Our unique esports membership, accessible via the Thinkific platform, is crafted to guide educators in harnessing the educational potential of esports. This membership offers a pathway for schools to engage students in a dynamic and collaborative learning environment, promoting digital literacy, critical thinking, and teamwork. The programme outlines how to effectively integrate esports into the curriculum, fostering a competitive yet educational atmosphere that resonates with today’s digitally-savvy students.



Tailored PLD Programmes: Merging Te Ao Māori with Digital Innovation

Building on the legacy of  DNA’s successful initiatives like Te Iwi Matihiko and programmes focused on online wellbeing and digital safety, our PLD offerings are more comprehensive than ever. Central to our PLD suite is the Oranga Matihiko programme, which equips educators with the expertise to blend Te Ao Māori with digital technologies seamlessly. This programme is pivotal in creating a culturally responsive, inclusive, and future-focused learning environment, thereby facilitating student success in alignment with NCEA standards.

Expanding Educational Horizons

Our commitment extends to providing educators and students with opportunities to explore beyond conventional subjects. From PLD sessions on Dungeons & Dragons (D&D) that enhance storytelling and strategic thinking, to comprehensive courses in gaming and broadcasting, I-atea offers a broad spectrum of learning opportunities. These programmes are not only engaging but also pave the way for students to explore potential career paths in the burgeoning digital and creative tech industries.

Join Our Educational Revolution

I-atea, supported by the combined strengths of TPM and DNA, invites educators across Aotearoa to embark on this transformative journey. By joining our esports membership and engaging in our PLD programmes, you’re not just enriching your teaching toolkit; you’re stepping into a role as a pioneer in the fusion of education, Te Ao Māori, and digital technology.
