Kia whai wāhi mai

Connected Educator Aotearoa New Zealand (CENZ) offers a range of ways for you, your colleagues, staff or organisation to get involved, from attending sessions to running one of your own.

Put your own, free events & activities on the CENZ calendar

As soon as you know some of what you’re going to do during Connected Educator, whether specifically for CENZ or not:

This will help us build momentum within the education community, both directly and indirectly, by giving us something more than the event itself to promote. Talk to us about what you’re thinking of doing, too — we want to provide support to enable you to offer professional learning events.

Sign up your staff and colleagues

Connected Educator Month offers a great opportunity for schools, kura, early childhood centres and more to promote connected professional learning.

Kickstart a project

A big part of making CENZ a year-round initiative is going to be kicking off big events and activities during October that continue beyond the month. With the reach it now has, CENZ can be the perfect launching pad for that out-of-the-box, game-changing project you’ve long been wanting to do but waiting for the right timing. Let us help you get it off to a running start. Your coolest, most creative projects will help us meet community and media expectations that each new CENZ builds on the years before.

How CORE Education can help:

  • We can provide support and advice around running your own session, using online conferencing tools and web-based communities of practice.
  • We will be promoting the events you share and your stories of participation through the Connected Educator newsletters and social media #CENZ17 / @ConnectedEduNZ
  • Tips for running an event/activity
