Enabling e-Learning
The Ministry of Education's Enabling e-Learning initiative aims to support schools in using ICT effectively to enhance students' learning. Enabling e-Learning brings together the latest information and professional learning resources via a dedicated space on Te Kete Ipurangi (TKI) and the Virtual Learning Network (VLN) community.


Ultra-fast Broadband in Schools
With technology increasingly key to education delivery, the Government has prioritised schools in its Ultra Fast Broadband (UFB) and Rural Broadband Initiatives (RBI), under which fibre is being rolled out across New Zealand.

97% of schools will receive ultra-fast broadband capability by 2016, with the remainder in areas too remote for fibre to receive an improved broadband service via satellite or alternative technology. As part of this commitment all state and state-integrated schools will receive a fully-funded connection to the fibre being rolled out in their area.
