Education

Digital Learning Support and Strategic Planning

Our team (including our MOE accredited staff) have the expertise and experience to help your staff develop responsible and effective digital teaching and learning strategies. We provide tailored face to face and online professional learning . We aim to empower teachers to integrate a digital environment effectively that is in line with ministry of education expectations.

 

Digital fluency attributes are the competencies that students and teachers require to participate effectively with digital tools.  Becoming digitally fluent requires teachers and students to have a deep understanding and capability to select and critically analyse digital tools that will promote successful learner outcomes.

What can we offer your school or CoL?

 

Through our Develop Engage Sustain model we take a tailored approach to work with your school or CoL. Here are some examples of what we can support you with.
