In 2017 the Manaiakalani Principals in partnership with the Manaiakalani Education Trust agreed to pilot a new approach to supporting effective teachers in their quest to become "At Home in  Digital World". All our 3000+ learners now live in a digital world, and the majority of them are now being educated in digital learning environments, so it is essential that 
  1. Our teachers are supported to acquire fluency using the basic tools our young people use for learning
  2. Our teachers are supported to acquire fluency using the basic tools required for effective teaching, planning, assessment and professional learning
  3. Our teachers are supported to understand how digital technologies used effectively can have a significant impact on accelerating achievement outcomes
  4. Our teachers are supported to understand how the Manaiakalani pedagogy and kaupapa has been co-constructed over more than a decade to maximise the impact of effective teaching and learning in a digital learning environment.
Up to fifteen teachers at a time have the opportunity to join a professional learning group which releases them from class one day a week (Fridays) over a school term to learn together, following a programme designed to meet these four key points.
