TENZ 2020 TOP TECH RESOURCE COMPETITION
Teacher Lockdown Resource Competition 2020
Throughout 2020 teachers of technology education across NZ have put their expertise on display in the flipped classroom. TENZ wants to reward your hard work!
During Terms 3 & 4 TENZ is asking teachers to submit a digital resource, lesson or activity. These teaching and learning resources can be anything that you have developed to teach Technology or STEM online. Teachers are asked to submit a lesson plan that illustrates your take on an activity.

- teacher name and school
- lesson title
- target year level
- time required for lesson/s
- achievement objectives/indicators of progression and/or progress outcome links
- materials required
- instructional steps
- assessment strategies
- differentiation strategies
Lesson plans will be scored using a rubric, and winners will be announced mid December 2020.
Note: Work submitted will be made available for sharing and collaboration with other teachers in a resource folder via the TENZ website. Plans are subject to revision and edits. Work will be published and shared under Creative Commons (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/nz/ ).
