Overview

CS4S Teachers' Network is like a community garden for teachers working in the New Zealand digital curriculum.

Plant the seed

Plant the seed

As a teacher, you have a wonderful opportunity to grow the future generation.

In the classroom, you nurture your students, planting seeds of knowledge. You collaborate with other educators, just like gardeners nurturing a community garden. Together, by supporting each other, the harvest is more bountiful than working alone.

Nurture each other to nurture our kids

CS4S Teachers’ network is a free, fun peer-to-peer network, a space to come together and share ideas and resources or ask questions.

There are so many exciting opportunities for teachers working in the digital curriculum – but there are challenges too. What tools and devices are out there? How do you use them in the classroom, and how does it relate back to students’ learning? How do you keep up with all the changes happening in digital technology?
