The Virtual Learning Network

 Think of this space as:

  • A virtual platform  
  • A resource bank to access and share resources
  • A space to add whakaaro, pātai, kōrero
  • NZ Educators sharing their stories

This is a short screen recording showing and explaining how to register for the Virtual Learning Network.  

Tips to remember:

  • Use your real name for your Display name - Allow viewers to make a virtual connection with you.
  • Use a school email address that ends with '.school.nz' to allow faster access to the Virtual Learning Network.  It is ok to use any email address but there will be a wait process to accept your registration.
  • You will be notified by email about two things - confirming your email address and acceptance.
  • Please ask for help if you need it
