Ako is a Maori word that means “co-learning” or “to learn together.”
Because of the rapid and exponential pace of technology development, especially now AI has really come to mature and will continue to get better at lightning speed, we need to take an approach where we all need to learn in a collaborative manner from each other.
At AkoTech, we believe that learning is a collaborative process and that everyone has something to contribute. That’s why we have adopted the principle of ako as the foundation of our company.
Our holiday programs are designed to be interactive and hands-on, encouraging teachers and students to learn by doing and by working together. We believe that this co-learning approach is the most effective way to engage young minds and spark a love of learning.
Through our ako-centred approach, we strive to create a supportive and inclusive environment where students can feel comfortable taking risks, trying new things, and asking questions. We believe that by fostering a culture of co-learning, we can help our students develop the skills and confidence they need to become the tech and STEM leaders of tomorrow.
We are still keeping the name CodeCamp and will be referring to it as our after school and holiday programs.
We will also be phasing out this website www.codecamp.co.nz over the next few months and using the domain www.akotech.nz. We will however be using this site as our blog which will eventually be ported over to blog.akotech.nz
