Connected Educator New Zealand is an initiative designed to support and promote networked approaches to educational professional learning.
This year a collaborative calendar will connect thousands of educators who will be able to engage in free (and freely given) professional learning events, communities and resources.
CENZ20 will offer free, online access to regional, national, and global workshops, keynotes, panels, discussions and more. It’s a celebration of how we can support each others’ professional learning in a connected world.
Educators, Schools, Kura, Early Childhood Services and other Learning Centres: Whether you want to learn to use digital technologies to connect to other educators beyond your learning environment, or grow the professional learning of others, there will be events for you.
Networked schools, schools, kura, early childhood services and other learning centres, gain hugely from sharing their own practice and learning from others.
