Lunch Break, Learn & Create Resources

GCSN has worked alongside CORE Education and Cyclone to design and deliver a series of short digital PLD clips and accompanying slide decks which you can engage with during your lunch break. We are proud to share with you - Lunch Break, Learn & Create - a series of digital fluency, professional learning and development  resources for educators. 

Lunch Break, Learn & Create will support you to strengthen your digital fluency and effective use of digital tools to support teaching and learning programmes. 

These sessions will cover all manner of things Google, including getting the most out of Google Suite for Education and which online tools and apps integrate well with Google apps to take them to the next level. We will also share strategies for the effective use of iPads and Chromebooks in the classroom, supporting your ākonga to seamlessly integrate their technology with effective digital apps and tools to create amazing mahi. 

We will be adding to our Lunch Break, Learn & Create resource suite over Terms 2 and 3 2022 so be sure to keep coming back to this page for new content to support your mahi.
