The Ministry of Education is calling on schools to share their experiences in using digital technologies for learning.

“We know there is a lot of innovative work going on in classrooms. How is your school using digital technology to meet the learning and achievement challenges of your students? Have your students and teachers got stories to tell that bring the use of digital technology alive?” says Deputy Secretary for Student Achievement, Rowena Phair.

“We will use these experiences to develop web resources that all schools can draw on as they continue to develop how they use digital technology in the classroom.

“We are looking for insights into how projects, practices, tools, and applications are being successfully used. We are interested in how technology is being used across learning areas, as well as examples of how technology is being used to help overcome barriers to learning. We’re also interested in fresh ways in which schools are using digital technology to address the needs of priority learners including Māori students, Pasifika students, students with special education needs, and those from low income families.”

Schools’ experiences will be shared on Te Kete Ipurangi and will also be available for schools to publish on their own websites.

Schools are invited to submit a brief outline of their insights by Friday 23 May.
