Educators free activities on digital technologies

Educators free activities on digital technologies

This October, educators and those who provide support or resources to educators, will join forces to provide a series of online activities with the aim of connecting educators together to increase digital technologies awareness, understanding and capability.

Connected Educator NZ (CENZ) begins on 28 September and, for a second year, brings a new approach to educators’ professional learning by bringing networking, knowledge, professional development and community together all online – and all for free.

CENZ is a cornucopia of online events and activities including forums and conversations with experts, webinars, virtual guided tours, Māori and Pasifika learning, live streams from the ULearn15 educators’ conference and much more.

The events are pulled together in a collaborative, online calendar that connects schools, kura and early learning centres with thousands of like-minded educators from around New Zealand and the world.

Be a connected educator. He whatunga tangata, he whatunga mātanga. CENZ15 gives educators the opportunity to engage in professional learning conversations in safe online spaces, helps to develop online and digital skills, including the ability to transfer that knowledge back to their own learners and colleagues.

Be a connected leader and share your own event
