Digital fluency PLD
Use digital technologies in learning and teaching to enhance achievement and reduce disparity.

Digital fluency threads through all of the national PLD priorities – assessment for learning, local curriculum design, and cultural capability for English-medium, and aromatawai, marau ā-kura, and mātauranga and te reo Māori for Māori-medium settings.
When ākonga are digitally fluent they can meet the entitlements of Te Marautanga o Aotearoa and the New Zealand Curriculum.
Connecting and aligning digital fluency professional learning alongside the other PLD priority areas is likely to support ākonga to use language, symbols, and text effectively and develop critical thinking skills to respond to an ever-changing world.
Our consultants can work with schools to evaluate, design and support the enactment of digital fluency. Kaiako/teachers and ākonga/students can confidently use digital technologies in learning and teaching to enhance achievement and reduce disparity.
