Russell Burt explains how we ReTool school to make it engaging, empowering and success making. At the same time guaranteeing equity and access so that what our government calls “priority learners” have the same opportunities for 3rd millennium citizenship as everybody else.

Manaiakalani uses Google Apps for Education for our cloud solution. The breadth of opportunities it offers for collaboration, content creation and communication and the access to learning  anywhere from any internet connected device, were the key factors behind the decision.  Our locally designed add-on, Hapara’s Teacher Dashboard, has made GAFE a highly effective ecosystem for teaching and learning. Manaiakalani teachers have been at the forefront of professional learning in New Zealand and currently the cluster has seven Google Certified teachers.
