They will be skilled in delivering professional learning in the online environment, and able to build and maintain cohesive professional relationships with educators across geographically diverse locations. Facilitators work as part of a highly collaborative innovation team building teacher skills and knowledge. Facilitation is in the context of the New Zealand curriculum and includes the implementation of the Manaiakalani Programme including the Learn Create Share pedagogy, visible teaching and learning, and the Manaiakalani CyberSmart curriculum.
