E-learning (electronic learning) is transforming the way learning takes place. It is about using digital technologies to leverage and enhance learning experiences and to connect to both whanau and the wider global community.
E-learning provides access to quality learning opportunities and a chance for authentic student voice. Students can develop increased self management skills through involvement with managing their own e-portfolio (Seesaw) and preparing themselves for a world of increasing digital connection.
Students at Kaitao will have access to;
- G Suite (Google apps)
- Pods of classroom Ipads
- Digital design and 3D printing
- Seesaw e-portfolio
- Video production
- Computer suite
Kaitao Intermediate is fully networked with a fibre optic ultra fast broadband connection and is part of the
Ministry of Education Network 4 Learning programme. All classrooms have at least four desktop computers and access to pods of Ipad minis, so students without BYOD devices will not be disadvantaged.
Kaitao Intermediate, in partnership with Nga Pumanawa e Waru, can provide students a BYOD device for
purchase with a modest weekly payment plan and simple application procedures.
