About this site

Our intended audiences for this site are educators, educational leaders, partners and affiliates, and anyone interested in education in both New Zealand and other countries. We have done our best to make our site easy to navigate, and the content easy to understand. The education and technology worlds are full of jargon, acronyms, and abbreviations that, to the uninitiated, can be difficult to understand. Wherever possible we have minimised such language.

We follow the practices of "plain language" on our site. Should you find difficulty in understanding any content on the site, please contact us (, as we are always seeking to improve the site. Of course, there are some things that cannot be expressed other than in the language of the industry we are in. Wherever possible we explain terms either within the content.
