Where to next?

Where to next? Stories and Reflections of a Digital Term 2

The Technology 4 Learning team are launching a thought-provoking video to help you and your school continue to build your digital foundation! We want to celebrate the amazing work teachers, students and school communities have done adopting and implementing technology over the last term. 

We want to help you:

  • Celebrate and reflect on your successes 
  • Inspire you to consider the next stage on your journey 
  • Empower you with the tools to plan and implement for the future

These resources use real stories from teachers, students and leaders in NSW public schools and are being released at the start of Term 3 to help you and your team celebrate, reflect and to plan for tomorrow.

Use these resources in conjunction with:

  • Staff Development Day Term 3 as a reflective tool for the day (allow 14 minutes to view plus reflection time).  
  • Creating your personal Professional Development Plan.

Resources come complete with school reflection questions, professional learning links as well as inspirational and thought-provoking multimedia content.
