The Ministry has launched its Learning From Home and Ki Te Ao Mārama websites which provide advice and resources to support parents, whānau, and teachers. The websites will help early learning centres, schools and kura to develop online learning plans that they can share with their parents and whānau during the Covid-19 lockdown.
The helpdesk assists leaders, teachers, kaiako, and whānau from schools, kura, and early childhood centres to make full use of the online environments and resources, as they provide for a continuity of learning for their students and tamariki during the lockdown.
Online support is from 8 am to 5 pm on business days.
The CLA service has ended as the Ministry shifts its focus to initiatives that support the Digital Technology and Hangarau Matihiko curriculum changes. As well as giving you access to the CLA's extensive library of resources, the links below pinpoint sources of ongoing support, depending on the type of questions you have.
These resources were produced by the Connected Learning Advisory to provide schools with useful technology information. They should not be read as a recommendation or endorsement of any specific products or services.
The ICT helpdesk for schools provides first level support for all schools about hardware and software issues. They are open for calls from principals, teachers, and school IT specialists. They enjoy helping non-technical people with their technical problems. Level 1 support is provided for a range of software applications such as Microsoft Office and Symantec.
