One for my Kiwi readers to begin their week.

Be in to win 1 of 5 $100 Prezzy cards when you complete our short survey

Ten Trends 2018 Survey
Kia ora Michael

We’d love your feedback please.

Each year CORE Education’s researchers, educators and digital technology experts pool their expertise and combine their understanding and evidence of the ways that digital technologies are influencing all aspects of education. The result is our list of the ten trends that are expected to make a growing impact upon education in New Zealand in the coming year.

This year we want to add more value to our reports by drawing on the experience and knowledge of educators immersed in teaching and learning. So we’re inviting a wide range of people to provide feedback by filling this short survey (5-10 minutes). We’re also asking for stories from your classroom practice, or from the impact at a whole school or system level.

Take a few moments to familiarise yourself with the Ten Trends.

Please add your response to each section of the survey – it won’t matter whether you have read the full Ten Trends document or not – your feedback is valued in order to help us understand the range of perspectives that exist.

Where possible, please add any ideas, suggestions or links in the spaces provided. We will integrate these in the 2018 version of the Trends.

Complete Survey Here >

Be in to win

As an incentive for taking the time to complete the survey, we invite you to enter your details to go in the draw to win 1 of 5 $100 Prezzy cards!
Prizes will be drawn and winners notified on 31 January 2018.

We love receiving your feedback and ideas of things you want to read about.

4 Reasons Why Online PD Could Be Right For You

One for my Kiwi readers.

Book your 2018 online programme or workshop by 30 Nov & you’re in the draw to win back the course fees!
CORE Online Programmes/Workshops
Kia ora Michael

When considering professional learning opportunities for 2018, it can be difficult to know which approach is right for you. Classroom teaching, paperwork and planning can leave little time to commit to your own professional development, so it must be relevant, engaging and practical.

At CORE Education, we have a number of online workshops and programmesavailable in 2018, to support you and take your learning to the next level.

So why choose online?

Online PD is FOCUSED

Online learning provides an opportunity to explore relevant topics using a mix of rich material and up-to-date research, designed to meet the needs of individuals, teams, whole schools and Communities of Learning | Kāhui Ako.

Online PD is ACTION DRIVEN

With online learning, you have the opportunity to put theory into practice and make immediate, meaningful change into your day-to-day practice.

Online PD is LEARNER LED

You set the pace with online learning to create your own journey, applied to your own context. While there may be set timeframes for some tasks, the rest is up to you with resources accessible anytime, anywhere.

Online PD is CONNECTED

Online learning allows you to connect and engage with fellow educators from around New Zealand to share your own knowledge and experiences via webinars and online forums. We also provide an option to continue discussions after the course has ended through edSpace, an online network for educators.
Enrol and WIN!
Great news…we have one free 2018 Online Programme or Workshop up for grabs!

Register before the end of the month and you could win back your course fees! 

NB: All currently enrolled attendees are already in the draw. 
Winners will be drawn 1/12/2017 and notified directly.
