Nationwide, schools are gearing up for the strengthened Digital Technologies and Hangarau Matihiko curriculum content to be introduced to the technology learning area of The New Zealand Curriculum and Te Marautanga o Aotearoa from 2018.

Now’s a great time to find out what support is available to schools on digital technologies for learning.

Meet the Connected Learning Advisory

Based regionally across New Zealand, the Connected Learning Advisory team has a diverse range of technological skills and experience in education and can provide you with free, independent, unbiased advice.

Meet Netsafe

An organisation focused on online safety, Netsafe helps educators and school communities get the most out of technology and manage online challenges – through the provision of practical tools, support and advice.

Meet Network for Learning (N4L)

More than 2,400 schools across New Zealand are connected to fast, reliable, safe, uncapped internet via N4L’s Managed Network, allowing every student and teacher seamless access to the internet – regardless of where they go to school. N4L is here to support schools along their digital journey.

Visit the Digital Hub at uLearn 2017

The uLearn conference provides insight on the latest developments in teaching technologies for educators. The Connected Learning Advisory, Netsafe and N4L are together offering a one stop shop ‘digital hub’ for all your digital learning needs.

The team will also be providing a joint presentation: ‘Keeping our children safe online’: in an age of online bullying, cyber attacks and scams, what can schools and partner organisations do to make the internet safer for students and protect their communities in 2017 and beyond?
