Whether you are starting your school's digital journey or you are ready to tackle the new digital curriculum content, Blend provides a unique model of facilitation that is effective and successful. Blending digital technology is only sustainable if it is relevant to teachers, pitched at the right student level and can be planned within authentic curriculum context.
Our point of difference - not only do we provide hands on workshops, strategic and infrastructure planning and support but we work in classrooms with teachers, modelling, sharing and reflecting, so good digital practice becomes embedded.
Blend is a Ministry of Education Accredited PLD Provider so contact us to support you with your application for MOE funded PLD.
engage < enhance < deepen
We work with teachers to build their confidence and knowledge to choose the right digital tool and ensure it engages the learner, enhances the learning and deepens the understanding. We work with teachers using the SAMR model and the e-competencies to build school digital toolkits that easily blend with literacy, numeracy and inquiry. We use technology as a tool to scaffold thinking and aid learning.

Has your school nailed the Digital
“Using digital technology with the ‘Engage, Enhance, Deepen’ frame of mind has been great. It’s made me question why am I using digital tools and what outcomes I want my learners to achieve. “
“It has been so valuable to observe Tracey in action so I can keep engagement of the kids in mind. It's been great focusing on a couple of apps so they can consolidate their learning and use it as a tool for critical thinking”
