Phases of the DTG project

The DTG project is a three year NZ Ministry of Education funded project, delivered in three phases:

Foundation phase (August 2007 – June 2008)

The foundation phase involved workshop-based face-to-face collaboration, bringing key stakeholders together on a regular basis to ensure a high level of stakeholder ownership and understanding.

The establishment of a Programme Executive Group (PEG) and a National Advisory Group (NAG) ensured the programme was quality assured and maintained industry and stakeholder relationships.

The foundation phase of the DTG established a group of 14 pilot schools from around New Zealand. These schools were supported by Cognition Consulting as they each created a unit of work and resources for their self-selected module within the DTG and trialled it in their schools.

Development phase (July 2008 – June 2009)

During this phase support was extended to 60 schools in a range of geographical regions. These schools worked with the project team to prepare for delivery of digital technologies in their schools in 2009. Key activities in this phase included:

  • formation of a professional leadership team to work with the development-phase schools, supporting the implementation of the DTG
  • development of a live website to facilitate the building a resource bank of work based on the strands of the DTG
  • regional interest groups (industry/tertiary/schools) focused on ongoing growth of contacts
  • a professional learning symposium in November 2008.

Consolidation phase (July 2009 – June 2010)

The number of schools implementing the DTG increased to 120. During this phase activities were primarily organised around:

  • the professional leadership team (PLT) providing support to DTG schools as they develop new programmes and leading the professional learning of teachers in regional clusters
  • regional interest groups (RIGs) to continue fostering strong industry and tertiary links.

The sharing of resource material and expertise via the DTG website is building a basis for all secondary schools within New Zealand to be able to implement the DTG.
