Support recognises the amazing success of Manaiakalani


Support from Telecom Foundation recognises the amazing success of Manaiakalani

The Innovation Partnership has welcomed the Telecom Foundation’s announcement that it is doubling its ongoing support for the Manaiakalani Education Trust, with another $1.2 million to support digital learning programmes in several new schools.

Innovation Partnership Chair Murray Sherwin says the Telecom Foundation’s support for Innovation Partnership member Manaiakalani has been vital to the pilot programme’s success, and has allowed Manaiakalani to prove the incredible potential of digitally enabled learning.

“Manaiakalani is an excellent example of how the Internet can fundamentally transform educational outcomes,” said Mr Sherwin.

“The Telecom Foundation’s continued and increased investment is deserved recognition of the amazing results that have been achieved by the teachers and students of the Tamaki cluster.

“This new round of support is vital to making sure that Manaiakalani is not a one off success, but is a catalyst for bringing digitally enabled learning to all New Zealand children.”

Research from 2013 suggests a major increase in positive student outcomes across the whole of the Tamaki cluster. This provides rich feedback to validate and further refine Manaiakalani approaches to achieving accelerated student achievement.

Evidence of particular improvement was noted across the cluster in writing and mathematics, together with an improvement in Tamaki College’s 2013 NCEA Level 2 results which, at 80% achievement are well up from 26% in 2011 and 51% in 2012.
