Awareness Days


Welcome to 2019! It’s when school returns (and traffic gets hard) that we know we’re back into the full swing of things.

A special *hey* to those schools who have joined us and are now venturing into the world of digital badges. We know you and your students are going to have a lot of fun creating a digital portfolio which reflects participation and achievement whilst promoting visible learning.

The content of your badges is up to you, but we’re keen to help connect you to resources we come across that lend themselves to a unit of work and digital badge.

We’ve created a series of Awareness Day badge images which we think will be widely used. There’s information about many of these national days on the NZ Curriculum site.  We’ve chosen Waitangi Day, Chinese New Year, Earth Day, ANZAC Day, NZ Sign Language (week), Pink Shirt Day, Matariki, and Diwali. Use whichever ones are relevant for your school!  (There are other days to celebrate too – let us know which ones you would use, and we’ll get on to it.)
