A third item for my Kiwi readers.

Stay connected in education with Connected Educator NZ.
Kia ora Michael

As this term draws to a close, it’s a great time to look at opportunities to connect over the non-contact time. Maybe you can explore some of the videos on Edtalks or catch up on reading over at the CORE Blog? But before you do that, be sure to have a read of this update from the Connected Educator team!

Whatever you do, we hope you have a restful break with your whānau.

We recommend checking out the Kia Tākatū ā-Matihiko meetups, taking place throughout Aotearoa over the next couple of months.

In the calendar you’ll find we also have our first Educamp for 2019, in Hawke’s Bay on 11 May. If you have an Educamp planned for your area, please go ahead and add it to our shared calendar.
