Clusters — Take charge of your PLD

Printer-friendly version

Become one of the NZ clusters joining the New Pedagogies for Deep Learning (NPDL) project, a global collaboration of schools in various parts of the world.

You’re invited to join us!

CORE Education, in collaboration with Michael Fullan, is extending an invitation to clusters of schools in New Zealand to join this highly successful project.

We work alongside educators to change the role of teachers to that of activators of learning who design learning experiences that build on learner strengths and needs, create new knowledge using real-life problem solving and help all students identify their talents, purpose and passion.

This project fits ideally with the aspirations of clusters seeking to work together as a community of schools under the IES initiative.

NPDL Southern Regional "Deep Learning Lab"

2-4 October 2016 - Christchurch, New Zealand
