Over 2000 principles, values and ideas for change were captured at the two Education Summits in May of 2018. This information is helping develop a 30-year vision for education, and is informing the actions we are taking to meet the needs of all our learners.
An overview of what you told us at the Summits is available here.
Around 1,400 people spent two days discussing their vision of what the future of learning might look like in New Zealand and the values that should underpin education.
Close to 4,000 tweets were sent over the Summit weekends about the Education Conversation, and the hashtag #EdConvo18 was trending on Twitter. Participants shared highlights and conversation content, and people who weren’t at the events could follow the hashtags and get involved.
There have been more than 16,000 responses to the online public survey.
