A new role in the NZ Ministry of Education has been advertised that should be of interest to all those who have an interest in the strategic direction and leadership of ICT in NZ schools.It’s the first time I can recall seeing the word “innovation” associated with a role within the MoE – looks like an exciting new development 🙂
