M.A.T.C.H (Māoriland “AHI” Tech Creative Hub) will put new technology in the hands of our young people.

Korakora Matihiko opens M.A.T.C.H which will be open weekly for rangatahi to learn and play in focused workshops, one on one training, ‘hackathons’, creative challenges, and ‘free-play’ led by industry leaders and fellow rangatahi.

These activities will build leadership capacity by encouraging rangatahi to use creative thinking and problem solving to develop and build creative solutions to given challenges.

Rangatahi who participate in M.A.T.C.H will develop creative tech literacy, mental agility and adaptability and hard technical skills. They will also develop collaboration and leadership skills through group work and tuakana-teina mentoring. M.A.T.C.H will support rangatahi to achieve in Hangarau Matihiko.

EXCHANGE KNOWLEDGE THROUGH PLAY

M.A.T.C.H SUPPORTS Hangarau Matihiko – the digital curriculum

The future of work is creative.

Creative technology is where creativity and technology intersect. It is a multi-million dollar industry that survives on story.

We want our rangatahi to be creators not consumers

Computational thinking is a skill for the future. It’s how we can solve big problems logically. It’s the backbone of creative technology.

We practice computational thinking everytime we play a game – giving us the skills to create our own.

Creative technologies are being used by Indigenous peoples to reconnect and exchange ancestral knowledge, story and language.

M.A.T.C.H will support our rangatahi to lead in this space as proactive digital citizens.
