The Interface Xpo has finished for another year and the N4L team are stoked to have connected with so many educators across the country.

It’s an event that N4L really looks forward to. We get to engage face to face with teachers and technology providers and the events provide the ability to hear from schools about what technology topics and challenges are  top of mind for them. This provides the opportunity for N4L staff to have targeted discussions with schools and learn how we can better support schools to get the most out of their Managed Network connection whatever their school setup.

Greg Duff (N4L) was on hand to address delegates, providing an update on the Managed Network Upgrade. Our team also hosted a workshop which provided an opportunity to receive some honest feedback on how our upgrade has impacted schools; broadly understand the challenges schools are currently facing; and peer into the future of how we’ll enhance the reporting we provide schools.

The workshop also provided schools an overview of how we (N4L) work with key support agencies (CERT NZ and Netsafe) to deliver holistic safety and security support to all NZ schools.  

The team loved the engagement from attendees and learned a lot from the experience, mostly good – but (as always) there’s still work to be done.

Three schools were winners of a morning tea shout after their teachers visited our stand to enter the N4L competition and play a game of Connect Four. Congratulations to our three morning tea shout winners;

  • Leanne Cropp from Cashmere High
  • Sonia Monk from Milson School
  • Natasha Bagley from Selwyn College

We are in the process of contacting the Mega Connect Four winner – make sure you are following us on Facebook to find out who has won for their school.
