Who will get priority?

Priority groups include schools/kura/clusters:

  • with a high proportion of students traditionally underserved by the education system
  • with an identified e-learning capability need
  • connecting to ultra-fast broadband and/or upgrading their network (SNUP).

Learning with Digital Technologies PLD programme 

The LWDT PLD programme combines online and face-to-face support. The PLD may include guidance with:

  • developing and realising your school's vision for your students as connected, engaged, creative life long learners
  • e-learning strategic planning
  • integrating technologies into teaching and learning
  • developing your infrastructure
  • using technologies to connect with and engage your community
  • conducting a self-review using the e-Learning Planning Framework.

The system of support section on the NZC website has information about the everyday resources and tools available to learners, teachers, leaders, and schools. The purpose of these centrally funded and managed supports is to supplement a school’s improvement actions.

  • Professional learning and development - school-initiated supports - information about the professional learning and development (PLD) provision of support for leaders and teachers to improve student achievement outcomes, particularly for priority learner groups, across a number of identified areas.
  • Learning with digital technologies - information specifically about the LWDT PLD programme of support for school leaders and teachers who are involved in whole school e-learning capability review and development.

Accessing learning with digital technologies PLD

Professional Learning and Development (PLD) is the provision of support for leaders and teachers to improve student achievement outcomes, particularly for priority learner groups, across a number of identified areas. 

Allocation of these resources is based on priority of need and is linked to schools’ targets and annual plans as set out in their charters. Schools need to talk with local or regional MoE staff about these supports.

Your local office Ministry of Education advisor is available to support in your next steps.

Tools to help with this can be found in the Self-review tools section of NZ Curriculum Online. Your analysis will be the basis for requesting PLD from your Regional Team.

Register your interest by contacting the senior advisor at your Regional Ministry office.
