Connected Learning Advisory (CLA) — Te Ara Whītiki


The Ministry of Education’s Connected Learning Advisory — Te Ara Whītiki (CLA) initiative is led by CORE Education. The initiative is a three-year-long contract aimed at supporting New Zealand schools and kura to maximise the potential of ultra-fast broadband and the managed network and digital technologies to achieve better educational outcomes.

Available from term one 2015, the CLA’s main intent is to support schools and kura to develop and sustain their e-learning capabilities in a structured and organised way, from strategy design, to purchasing, to building the professional capabilities of teachers.

CORE draws on the strength of our relationships with schools and educational organisations to ensure the Advisory's guidance is tailored to suit the needs of schools and kura, and a cohesive, connected service across the country is established and delivered.

The CLA service works at the point where technologies and teaching approaches intersect providing a cohesive vision for access, quality guidance, and resources. Services include the provision of a responsive help desk across multiple channels and professional learning activities targeted to identified needs.
