Connected Learning Advisory

The Connected Learning Advisory (CLA) | Te Ara Whītiki service concluded at the end of 2018.

About the service

For 4 years the CLA supported schools, kura and kāhui ako to maximise the potential of their Network for Learning (N4L) managed network connection by providing free, consistent, unbiased advice on embedding digital technologies with learning. 

With the introduction of the Digital Technologies & Hangarau Matihiko (DT & HM) curriculum changes, the Ministry is now shifting its focus to support schools with the introduction of these changes. For instance the Digital Technologies for All Equity Fund and Digital Readiness Programme will help make digital technologies more accessible for students and support teachings to understand the DT & HM changes.
