  • &lt; 20% East Cape and Northland students have access to internet at home compared with &gt;98% on the North Shore (last census).
  • Note Telecom zoning issues around schools Zone 1 and 2 (UFB schools…..towns with &gt;500 lines and therefore have cabinetisation project underway) Zone 3 ab …RBI will kick into these zones…these will be the last parts to get FTTN Zone 4 – Remote schools – 100 or so…..generally small and far from fibre (currently). Primary target for RSBI Remote MAY be easier

  • ICT PD programme has been very influential – early promise of an e-learning transformation and connected school system has remained largely unrealised as yet – while other countries have invested heavily in a more coherent approach in terms of infrastructure, NZ has got much right in terms of a focus on change and pedagogy and networked people – the grass roots. Underlying principles Principles that underpin the development of the ICT PD programme model are: Collaboration and sharing of practice and are critical components of effective professional learning. Teachers’ competence and confidence in ICT is critical in preparing students to participate successfully in the 21st century society and workforce. Integrating ICT in the education system (via appropriate and relevant government and sector initiatives) can transform the way teachers teach and students learn by opening access to a wider range of learning opportunities for more students. ICTs will assist teachers and schools to undertake the required administrative processes more efficiently and effectively. School leaders are best placed to make decisions about how to meet their school’s PD requirements. WITH SUPPORT

    1. 1. April 2011
    2. 2. Marg McLeod Acting Group Manager, Schooling Implementation
    3. 3. <ul><ul><li>Online world now integral to students’ lives </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Increasing evidence that learning in online environments can significantly enhance engagement + lift achievement . </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Particularly effective for students who don’t respond to traditional teaching methods. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Students can create, collaborate and learn - anytime, anywhere and from anyone . </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>In other words – learning without limits </li></ul></ul>Why UFB in schools?
    4. 4. Where are we now? <ul><ul><li>Vast majority of schools are now on broadband </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Speeds range between 0.5-5Mbps – increasingly inadequate for many online services to work properly </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>C urrently < 200 New Zealand schools have bandwidth required for streaming video, web conferencing, apps such as Google Earth </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Next generation of applications require high speed, symmetrical (i.e. fast in both directions) internet connections </li></ul></ul>
    5. 5. Barriers <ul><ul><li>Fragmented ICT approach has resulted in a variety of network architectures – a challenge to connect </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Schools purchase individually – limits opportunity to centralise procurement and reduce cost </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Digital divide issue nationally – is now access to the internet, not access to computers </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Limited opportunities for remote support/provision of off-site support </li></ul></ul>
    6. 6. The Government’s commitment <ul><ul><li>97% NZ schools (99.7% of students) will have access to ultra-fast broadband (capable of 100megabits/second) by 2016 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>3% remote schools will have access to fast broadband (up to10Mbps) by other means e.g.satellite or point-to-point wireless </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>$1.5 billion investment overall </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>$150 million investment signalled to prepare schools for the rollout </li></ul></ul>
    7. 7. How? <ul><li>Ministry of Economic Development responsible for Government policy on fibre rollout </li></ul><ul><li>Urban areas = Ultra Fast Broadband Initiative </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Crown Fibre Holdings (CFH) set up to manage the $1.35 billion ‘Ultra Fast Broadband (UFB) Initiative’. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Two regional providers selected so far; Northpower (Whangarei) and WEL Networks (Hamilton, Tauranga, Whanganui, Tokoroa, Hawera and New Plymouth </li></ul></ul>
    8. 8. How? <ul><li>Rural areas = Rural Broadband Initiative </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Separate $300 million Rural Broadband Initiative (RBI) overseen directly by MED </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>MED currently negotiating with Telecom/Vodafone </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Negotiations expected to be completed April 2011. </li></ul></ul>
    9. 9. How will rollout happen? <ul><li>Depends on outcome of UFB/RBI procurement processes and subsequent order in which successful providers choose to connect schools. </li></ul>
    10. 10. Ultra-fast Broadband in Schools programme <ul><ul><li>Aim: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>To enable schools to realise the potential of UFB to improve outcomes for students </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Vision: Learning without limits </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Learning anywhere, anytime, from anyone, through access to ubiquitous digital networks, appropriate ICT tools and the skills and knowledge to use these effectively. </li></ul></ul>
    11. 11. How will UFB improve education outcomes? <ul><li>Equity </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Reduced barriers of distance and travel costs eg virtual field trips </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Enabling sharing of scarce resources eg M ā ori medium teachers </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Engagement </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Students using familar (‘leisure’) technology to create and learn eg Skype, gaming, virtual worlds </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Particularly effective for previously disengaged students or students with special needs </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Teaching </li></ul><ul><ul><li>24/7 remote access to students’ work </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Opportunities for virtual professional development (already happening) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Systems </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Better data collection, enabling evidence-based policies </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Ability to identify needs and target support </li></ul></ul>
    12. 12. What are we doing? <ul><ul><li>Information and support for schools pre, during and post connection to fibre </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Investigating viability of dedicated education network </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Building capability </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Provision of hardware and software </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Upgrading network infrastructure </li></ul></ul>
