Report
Delivering 21st century education in future focused
learning environments
Welcome from Lesley Longstone
Nayland Primary School
“Once in a while there is a convergence of independent but relatable forces that
come together and create synergetic breakthroughs in societal learning. We are
at the early stages of a potentially powerful confluence of factors that could
transform education.
Change that works that has an elegant quality to it—something that is
ingeniously simple and profound.
The three forces that currently offer us this possibility are: recent knowledge
about ‘whole system reform’, insights on powerful pedagogical practices, and
digital innovations with enormous potential.”
(From: Whole System Reform for Innovative Teaching and Learning,
Michael Fullan, ITL Research 2011: Findings and Implications, page 31)
Ministry of Education priorities
Two key strategic priorities
• Improve education outcomes for Māori and Pasifika learners, learners
with special education needs and from low socio-economic
backgrounds.
• Maximise the contribution of education to the New Zealand economy.
Ultra-fast Broadband and the Network for Learning
will contribute to these priorities by:
•
Enabling improved learning opportunities for students - greater collaboration
with communities, peer learning, authentic learning, potentially increasing
engagement, and motivation to learn.
•
Improving effectiveness of teaching and learning – resources can be more
easily accessed and adapted to student’s needs. Learning can be differentiated,
self-paced, and personalised.
•
Enabling leaders and teachers – to engage more effectively in collaborative
enquiry practices.
•
Improving efficiencies - in administration processes.
The Government’s commitment to
Ultra-fast Broadband
•
Significant investment of $1.5 billion to deploy ultra-fast broadband
across NZ, managed by collaboration of government agencies.
•
Ultra-fast broadband access to 97.7% of schools by 2016.
•
Schools in area too remote for fibre will receive an improved service
through satellite (3) or wireless technology (57).
•
To optimise the investment, Government:
-
is continuing the School Network Upgrade Project (SNUP).
-
will establish an online network for schools – the Network for
Learning.
Why Ultra-fast Broadband and the
Network for Learning in Schools?
•
Vision: Learning without limits
“Learning anywhere, anytime, with anyone, in ways that suit
individuals’ skills, strengths interests, and needs, and that recognise
their identity, language and culture”.
•
Online digital world now integral to students’ lives.
•
Particularly effective for students who are underserved by traditional
teaching methods.
•
Summary sheet of key research findings and an updated reading list is
available on Enabling e-learning:

School Network Upgrade Project (SNUP)
•
Subsidises and manages upgrade of internal data and electrical cabling to improve
network performance within schools.
•
Provides minimum network standards for new schools and buildings (wireless is
currently under consideration).
•
808 schools completed, 1394 schools remaining.
•
Criteria, reviewed by the Minister to meet Government priorities, are published on
the Ministry website: www.minedu.govt.nz/SNUP
Schools Infrastructure Survey
•
Assesses standard and performance of current hardware and capacity of
network.
•
Measures the readiness of schools to use the Network for Learning.
•
Informs future scope of the SNUP project.
•
Good response to the survey to date.
•
Requires up to eight hours to complete - depending on school size and
complexity - but is a worthwhile exercise for schools to carry out if they can.
•
Gives principal and board a comprehensive picture of their schools IT
infrastructure.
•

Connecting Your School to Fibre
(--- this process can take some considerable time to complete ---)
•
The physical fibre infrastructure passes by the school gate.
•
A service line (or 'drop') is laid into the school server room from the
infrastructure.
•
The electronics are connected to the fibre at both the school and the fibre
provider ends and are enabled (or 'lit').
•
The fibre line is now ready for a service.
•
A retail service provider (or 'RSP') is contracted by the school.
•
The school uses the service.
•
List of RSPs here: http://elearning.tki.org.nz/Choosing-a-RSP
UFB: School Connection Process. 15-18 months build
Eg March 2012
• School advised it’s in deployment plan, UFBiS info pack sent.
• School send back Approval to Proceed form to MoE, which advises
LFC/Chorus.
• Communal infrastructure is built in neighbourhood.
• LFC/Chorus advises contractor to liaise with school on design of
service line/”drop”. “Drop” is designed.
• “Drop” design sent to school for Board of Trustees approval.
• Design approved and contractors advised.
• “Drop” completed.
• Certificate of drop completion issued. Triggers subsidy payment.
• Electronics become available in cabinet (where applicable).
• School made ready for service.
• School determines a provider and begins using a service.
Eg June 2013
July/August 2012

Retail services for schools
•
Some schools have a live fibre connection but no Retail Service Provider (RSP)
available.
•
Services targeted at small to medium-sized business are emerging in the new
market place. These are suitable for schools e.g. Orcon, Inspire.Net, NOW, Snap
Internet Ltd, Call Plus, Uber Group and XFnet.
•
Information is posted on Enabling e-learning website as we are aware of it –
http://elearning.tki.org.nz/Choosing-a-RSP
•
To ensure your school is able to take up the Network for Learning offer,
negotiate retail service contracts of no longer than two years. Watch for
expensive buy-out clauses.
•
The Network for Learning is the longer-term solution for schools.

What could you be doing?
•
Update your ICT plan. Plan for a technically sound network and
hardware to optimise ultra-fast broadband.
•
Determine the professional learning and development required for your
teachers - resources available e.g. e-profile, e-learning planning
framework, Professional Learning and Development.
•
In your region work with others - share knowledge - easier than going
alone.
•
How else can the Ministry help at a systems level? Feedback welcome.
Next steps
• Ongoing consultation and engagement with schools.
• Workshops for Principals (+ BoT rep, e-Learning/ICT lead)
•
•
