WHAT SCHOOLS SAY
Blend Learning supported us to implement and strengthen our digital fluency. The impact of the PLD was clear as teachers and students built confidence and capacity to embed digital technology throughout the school. Tracey made it easy for teachers to integrate coding, robotics and computational thinking into their classrooms.
Working with Tracey has been amazing. She is an essential part of our whānau and has contributed greatly with her immense knowledge in digital fluency.
Her patience and expertise with easy-to-use tools for both teachers and students make her an invaluable asset in our bilingual unit and together we have created some amazing digital outcomes.
DON BUCK SCHOOL
Blend Learning have provided unwavering support to our teachers as they navigate the complexities of integrating technology into their classrooms.
Their expertise, combined with their engaging workshops and modelling, have allowed us to build a digital kete and shape a digital citizenship program that truly prepare our students for the future.
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.
