This month, the University of Auckland hosted a celebration event at the Old Government House pavilion to recognise research excellence. The event, named Shaping Future Communities, included our very own team from Developing in Digital Worlds who were specially requested to present the study. The Minister for Research, Science and Innovation Hon. Megan Woods, the University’s Vice-Chancellor Stuart McCutcheon, and the CEO of UniServices Dr. Andy Shenk were all treated to a showcase of the Developing in Digital Worlds findings, giving invaluable insight into digital education in New Zealand.
If you are a parent of a child in years 3-4 or years 5-9 and were invited to contribute to Developing in Digital Worlds at the beginning of this year, or if you have just heard about the project and would like to participate, we would love to hear from you. Please note that the closing dates for submitting your questionnaire are:
- 1 June for parents of children in years 3-4
- 1 June for parents of children in years 5–9
If you have misplaced your questionnaire but would still like to participate, or if you would like to participate for the first time, please email the project leader, Angela McNicholl.
