Building capability in online learning and teaching through Networks of Expertise

In this issue we invite you to attend NEX online events. Learn about how 'Knowledge Building'  can support students to become creative and innovative within a community of learners; explore how management of the Zoom dashboard can provide timely insights to support quality online connections; and make sure you Save the Date for our National Hui - 8th October Rotorua.

Darren shares an opinion piece on the Tomorrow's Schools review and sees this as an opportunity to explore how we can bring meaningful system-wide change to education in the 21st century.  How will communities of online learning be part of a future schooling system?

We provide a regular update on the activities of our NEX online community and invite you to jump in contribute and participate in the conversation and sharing taking place there. Make the most of the promotional opportunity for new NEX members - this is being extended to the 10th May.
