Te Rangitawaea ICT Festival, Ngati Porou

Te Rangitawaea ICT Festival, Ngati Porou

As part of this year’s Te Rangitawaea ICT Festival, students from Ngati Porou East Coast Schools have been trained by professional broadcasters to deliver a Noon news webcast live from the festival in Ruatoria.

Te Rangitawaea celebrates the creative and innovative digital media achievements and development of local students. The webcast will enable students to further their skills in  broadcasting and to also provide an opportunity for rural Maori youth to  participate in the digital news age.

Webcast Time:  12 Noon, Wednesday 16th September 2009

The festival has been supported by the NZ National Commission for UNESCO’s UCAF 2009 funding. The fund is for New Zealand projects that engage with two or more of UNESCO’s mandated programme areas: Education, Natural Sciences, Social and Human Sciences, Culture, Communications and Information.
