The Grass Roots Ideas Initiative was set up to help schools around New Zealand better understand how digital technologies can enhance teaching and learning. It gathers real-world information from teachers who are innovating with technology in the classroom.
Grass Roots Ideas was set up to help schools around New Zealand to better understand how to use digital technologies to enhance teaching and learning.
We know teachers and school leaders are best placed to know what is working in this area of fast-paced change and this initiative aimed to help teachers and learners to lead a transformation of the education system through small-scale, iterative, and incremental change.
We collected ideas and information from teachers and schools in 2016-2017. Information on completed initiatives is available on the Grass Roots Ideas Initiative website . We sincerely thank all the schools, teachers, and students who were involved.
While no further funding is available for Grass Roots Ideas, we continue to support innovative teaching and learning practices through the Ministry’s Teacher-led Innovation Fund (TLIF). The next TLIF funding round opens in November 2017 and more information on this can be found on Education.govt.nz .
The Grass Roots Initiative website provides information on projects and the people involved.
