Teachers share how they’re embracing the digital future with The Mind Lab

Many have questioned whether New Zealand’s education sector is doing enough to help students prepare for a digital world, but if the teachers sharing their stories with the Mind Lab are anything to go by, the future is in safe hands. The digital education provider has launched a platform that showcases what teachers are doing to prepare the next generation for the changes ahead.

Picking what to study when you finish school is a daunting task for most, with a myriad of options and information at students’ fingertips.

The head of the country’s umbrella tech organisation says it’s boom time for both its organisation and the industry in New Zealand.

The government’s recent investment into digital education is a start, says Vend founder and OMGTech! co-founder Vaughan Rowsell.

New Zealand is known as a nation of innovation. Do you have something cool you've come up with that you think deserves to be recognised at the 2017 New Zealand Innovation Awards? Then enter it in the Innovation in Education, Training and Development, sponsored by Chartered Accountants Australia & New Zealand.

Best in class?

The Government is shaking up the curriculum, pouring millions into a digital-first focus. But as the way our children learn changes, so are the physical spaces they're learning in. And Richard Naish, the director of one of the country’s most-lauded architecture firms, RTA Studio, believes better-designed public schools can help improve education.
