About The Digital Fluency Intensive

In 2017 the Manaiakalani Principals in partnership with the Manaiakalani Education Trust decided to pilot a new approach to supporting effective teachers in their quest to become "At Home in  Digital World".  All our 3000+ learners now live in a digital world, and the majority of them are now being educated in digital learning environments, so it is essential that: 

Manaiakalani teachers (including those across our Network Schools) have the opportunity to join a professional learning group to learn together, following a programme designed to meet these four key goals. The Digital Fluency Intensive releases them from class one day a week for nine consecutive weeks. The cluster calendar is populated with the dates for each cohort.
