Changes in Student Allowances in 2009

From 2006 to 2008 the number of student allowances recipients rose by 5 percent each year, reaching 65,700 in 2008. In 2009, the number of recipients increased by 16,900 (or 26 percent) and reached 82,6002. The increase was largely due to high unemployment, particularly for younger age-groups, due to the economic recession. The reduction of the parental income testing age to 24, and increase to parental income thresholds both contributed to increases in allowance recipients.

The Centre of Innovation (COI) Programme is a strategy aimed at improving the quality of early childhood education. It aims to promote a deeper exploration of innovative teaching and learning processes already underway in early childhood services. For more information visit: Centres of Innovation (COI) Programme Ngā Kauhanga Whakarehu.

A limited number of ECE services are selected on merit in each round by a selection panel convened by the Ministry of Education. Selected services are designated COI for a three year period during which time they are contracted by the Ministry to: Research and further develop their existing innovative practice; and disseminate information about their innovation and the outcomes of their research. They work in partnership with a research associate who is contracted by the ministry to provide research support services to their teacher researcher partners. At the end of each COI project, the teacher researchers and their research associate produce a comprehensive final research report.

Completely Different or a Bigger Version? Experiences and Effects of the Transition to Secondary School

Most of the Competent Children, Competent Learners study sample changed school when they went on to secondary level. This transition often involved some marked change in the characteristics of the school they attended—moving to a much larger school, or to a single-sex school. Friends were often lost in the process—but they were also gained. But secondary school offered students a wider range of experiences, rather than a totally new world.

Creating digital age learners through school ICT projects: What can the Tech Angels project teach us?

This article surveys recent work on school ICT projects.
