An update from the Ministry of Education of online learning support available:
As in the previous COVID-19 lockdown, our two distance learning websites are live, and will continue to be updated:
Home Learning TV | Papa Kāinga TV is also back to support learning for children aged 2-to-11 years while Auckland remains in Alert Level 3 and the rest of the country in Alert Level 2.
Home Learning TV | Papa Kāinga TV will take over TVNZ DUKE’s daytime schedule 9am to 1pm on week days. Programming for younger children includes the popular Karen’s House at 9am. DUKE is available on Freeview channel 13, Sky and Vodafone TV channel 23. It can be live streamed on the TVNZ website, www.tvnz.co.nz. All earlier episodes of Home Learning TV | Papa Kāinga TV remain available on TVNZ OnDemand.
Teachers can access details of the upcoming week’s lessons on the Learning from Home website’s HLTV page so they can plan ahead, and incorporate the lessons into their teaching programmes. Lesson plans are also available to support teachers.
Mauri Reo Mauri Ora is back to support learning for children aged 0 to 18 years. Mauri Reo Mauri Ora will be airing once again on Te Reo Māori Channel via SkyTV, Vodafone channel 82 and Freeview Channel 15 from 9am to 3pm on week days. Korou Whangataua, Juneea Silbery and Ani-Piki Tuari will host these interactive sessions focused on kōhungahunga in the morning through to wharekura in the afternoon.
