Digital Creativity Foundation | Level 4

We know it’s hard to make big decisions about your future, which is why our Digital Creativity Foundation programme covers a little bit of everything from the worlds of creative and digital design. 

Digital creativity is highly sought after in sectors like the arts, advertising, game design, film making and more. 

This programme is delivered online by Media Design School with students working onsite in Rotorua with Digital Natives Academy who provide pastoral care along with state-of-the-art high spec computers and an amazing new space to study.

Our Partners

Welcome to Digital Natives Academy


About Us

Digital Natives Academy (DNA) Charitable Trust was established in 2014 to inspire the next generation of digital leaders.

Our kaupapa is about providing whānau who need access to digital technology the chance to learn and strengthen their abilities to think computationally.  Our mission is to provide digital tools that will encourage tamariki and rangatahi to think creatively, work collaboratively, and reason systematically in order to celebrate a digital future that respects and reflects Te Ao Māori.

DNA is an intergenerational centre of digital excellence, a place where curious young minds can find exceptional leaders along with state of the art digital tech. It is also a Sanctuary from an often cold, uncaring world where the outliers of society can find peace, a warm smile, friendship and shared passions.
