Ko töu reo, kotöku reo

Te taukiri tangata.

Tihei uriuri, tihei nakonako.

Your voice and my voice

Are expressions of identity

May our descendants live on and our hopes be filled.

This is your opportunity to turn your thinking upside down as you explore the fluid exhibition space called Our Space. Let’s pretend it’s your classroom!

Our Space is a multimedia interactive exhibition space, which utilises technology, photographic images, and video footage to explore themes of New Zealand’s national identity. Multiple narratives come alive, pathways are revealed, and students are engaged as 21st century learners.

Our Space has two specific learning sites: The Map and The Wall. On The Map, you can trigger your own path of inquiry. At The Wall, you can use wands and touch screens to create visual stories and murals through media compositions.

This workshop will focus on The Wall.Ourspace logo

As preparation you are invited to download images onto the Our Space website and to check out The Wall in real time at

In the workshop, you will have the opportunity to collectively explore The Wall and hear how Te Papa’s Education team is using this space with students. As educators, the team is striving for multiple connections, deeper learning, and maximum engagement of students. We are constantly asking ourselves: What might using multimedia teaching and learning spaces look like? This workshop will continue to explore that question.

Kia mau te wehi!
