Future-focused Learning Examples

These school examples are provided to show you how schools are effectively integrating digital technology with teaching and learning. Each example is referenced to the dimensions of the e-Learning Planning Framework; and the future-focused learning themes identified by New Zealand Council of Educational Research. Initially we are sharing two school examples but expect to add more over time.
