Education Events Guide at PB Tech

PB Tech has teamed up with those talented educators at Using Technology Better NZ and together we will be hosting special workshops available to teachers throughout New Zealand.

For those that haven't joined us previously at events like these, they are never boring! Expect a hands-on experience that puts you in direct contact with the latest technology & tools developing in the education sector. Armed with both the knowledge and experience you'll be confident when introducing new activities into your classroom learning environment. 

Thanks to support and funding from Microsoft these new workshops are FREE to attend. (These workshops usually cost around $200 per attendee.)

Spots are strictly limited, so make sure you’re registered for our FREE, hands-on and exciting workshops hosted by STEM experts at Using Technology Better. 

Our upcoming workshops will be hosted all around the country for educators and teachers to learn more about the Microsoft STEAM suite and STEM/Makerspace robotics. Each workshop focuses on the use of STEM & Makerspace technology to inspire, learn and share knowledge with others with an enjoyable, hands-on approach.

DURING THESE WORKSHOPS YOU'LL LEARN HOW TO:

- Program robotics with and Makebot Mbots, Airblock and the Ranger. Get hands-on with Minecraft EE and discover how you can use this tool for authentic learning activities.

- Invent with Makey Makey, Makecode.com and Microbits, Touch Develop and a range of other technology & creation tools.

- Discover how you can develop a S.T.E.A.M Learning program using a range of low to high tech tools and digital technologies, within the Microsoft for Education eco-system.

- Develop your students as creative, communicative, collaborative and critical thinkers. Demystify STEM education and learn easy-to-use strategies for the new digital curriculum for schools.
