Technology is continually transforming our lives and therefore student learning environments, outside as well as inside school buildings, also need to be transforming and staying relevant with accessible technologies. This is a daunting task that relies on strong continuous improvement efforts and a recognition that the core issue is that of instructional and pedagogical practices. The planning and work must take place around learning, teaching, leadership, assessment, and infrastructure and yet we focus most of our time and energy on technology tools and skill development in isolation.

The Central Rivers Technology Integration Team is available to consult, coach, plan, and work with you to take actionable steps towards realizing the potential technology has for helping learners of all kinds to thrive.
