EdTech’s first working group

I am excited that EdTechNZ’s first working group, the Digital Skills Working Group, is officially up and running and we are now working with external stakeholders to further our objectives. The primary purpose of the working group is to help solve the digital skills gap by demonstrating the effective educational technologies (tools, platforms and pedagogies) that work best for schools, tertiary learning and workforce training. The focus is on 21st century learning and skills, coupled with technology’s role in augmenting education.
