The Ministry of Education’s Connected Learning Advisory is committed to supporting schools and communities as they plan for, manage and use digital technologies for learning. Each term the advisory runs a range of online and face-to-face events.
The Connected Learning Advisory – Te Ara Whītiki is running a series of half-day workshops throughout Term 2 covering best practice for student data and student management systems (SMS).
The workshops are free of charge, and are being held at venues across the country. They are not intended as a substitute for SMS training from your product vendor and are not looking at particular SMS platforms. Instead, the workshops provide a broader framework of ideas to help you make the most of your chosen SMS.
The workshops will include:
Facilitators will support you to unpack and review your current practices, and consider new opportunities to harness the full capability of your SMS.
