Share your examples of learning with digital technologies


The Ministry of Education is calling on schools to participate in the development of online resources that will share some of the diverse ways schools are using digital technologies to enhance teaching, learning, leadership, administration, and/or community engagement in schools.

Experienced providers of multi-media products will take content provided by schools and create inspiring and easy to access web resources that illustrate the digital learning journey for schools, their communities, teachers, and students, including both the challenges and the benefits. Some schools may be invited to work directly with producers in the development process. Teacher Relief will be provided by the Ministry for this purpose if required.

Schools are encouraged to share their experiences at whatever stage they are in their digital learning journey, as examples will be helpful to schools at similar stages of planning and implementing digital technology related initiatives.

The final products will be shared on Te Kete Ipurangi (TKI). Schools will also be encouraged to publish on their own websites and to use the resources for their own purposes.

Schools are invited to submit an outline of their experiences by Friday 23 May, 2014.
