Your October update

EdTechNZ’s Annual Meeting is upon us in October which means that it’s also election time for our Executive Council.

To ensure our continued success, it is critical for us to have the support of a purposeful and engaged Executive Council. As such, we encourage you all to consider who you think could make a meaningful impact as a member of our EdTechNZ Executive Council. We also believe that it is imperative to have diverse representation.

All nominations must be entered online here by 5pm, Thursday 24 September 2020. Voting will be online, and each member organisation has one vote that is allocated to the primary contact of the member organisation.


Congratulations to Duane Grace on being selected to represent EdTechNZ as a Community Board Member on the NZTech Board. Duane was appointed to the EdTechNZ Council earlier this year and was recently nominated by the current EdTechNZ Executive Council as our candidate. Duane is a passionate, engaged individual who we believe will promote diversity and inclusion, as well as a proud voice of iwi!

Looking forward to Level 1

EdTechNZ would like to reboot our Meetup series once we are back at Alert Level 1, and we are looking for ideas, venues and support to reignite this. We have more than 1,200 members in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch. Our Meetup groups are for educators, entrepreneurs, technologists, education reformers, and EdTech enthusiasts looking to discuss and share inspirational keynotes, panel discussions, member spotlights, and hands-on learning experiences. Do you have a great idea, want to lend a hand, or even have a venue that is suitable? Please let me know and let’s drive innovation in the education technology sector!

Maori Language Week

Maori Language Week is now over, but if, like me, you are inspired to continue your Te Reo Māori journey, there are lots of resources available, both online as well as local. Do your homework to ensure you find a great fit, but here are a couple I’m looking at: Tōku Reo and Te Whanake.
