As our influence extends beyond the education sector, we are honoured to witness the growing interest from various groups within the NZTech community. The EdTechNZ collaborative spirit and forward-thinking approach have garnered interest from groups such as AI Forum, IoT Alliance and BlockchainNZ, reinforcing the idea that education and technology are powerful allies. As we unite our forces, we anticipate exciting opportunities for cross-sector collaboration and knowledge exchange, fostering a brighter future for education in New Zealand. With this in mind, we hope to continue to see this growing appreciation from our peers, but now it’s time to do the mahi to be leaders of the tech and education industry.
To be a leader in the tech industry, it all starts with the basics – our NZ curriculum and traditional education system. We’re proud of our growing relationship with the Ministry of Education (MoE), especially with our upcoming webinar and welcoming the General Manager for NZ Curriculum & Te Whāriki at the Ministry of Education, Julia Novak, to our Executive Council. With our collective mission of transforming education, we searched for a candidate who embodies passion, vision, and dedication – and Julia is the perfect fit. Her expertise and unwavering commitment to advancing education through technology will undoubtedly amplify our efforts in bringing innovative products and services to schools.
The MoE have recently launched their digital strategy refresh, Connected Ako; a transformative blueprint for redefining education with digital technologies at the forefront. In celebration of this milestone, we’ve partnered with MoE to share their insights and spotlight inspiring stories in our webinar hosted on Wednesday, 26 July. Register to attend our webinar at 12 pm tomorrow.
Mark your calendars for Founders Day on 4-5 August. It’s going to be a fantastic opportunity for EdTech founders to come together and share their knowledge. We’re thrilled to have guest speakers Lane Litz (Chatterize), and Sally Webster (AWS) who will be sharing her inspiring EdTech founder journey and providing valuable insights on navigating the EdTech space. Founders Day is all about fostering collaboration, exchanging ideas, and building strong relationships to further develop our world-class local EdTech ecosystem. This event is for founders only. To register, please email our executive director, Alison Mackie.
