Victoria personalises the Digital Technologies Curriculum PLD for staff so they work at a pace that suits them and does this in a challenging but caring manner. She has pushed our thinking, modelled new learning and supported each teacher in their development. Victoria has set our school up in a sustainable way that when her time finishes we will be able to push on and flourish. She is amazing! I can’t wait to have her back!
Rob has been an integral part of the appraisal process and the professional development of our senior leadership team at Queenstown Primary School. He helped me gain insight into my strengths and how best to put them to work. He is always approachable and easy to deal with, while remaining professional and honest. He is knowledgable and passionate about the work he does.
Your content and pedagogy his meant that you have delivered an extremely valuable series of professional learning that has been well received by our staff. Victoria understands what it’s like to be a teacher and she works the hours that teachers work and for us, that’s made a difference.
Shona has helped our staff navigate through the complexities of 21st-century learning concepts. As a result, we are a school with a strong sense of direction and philosophy around our learning culture, especially in the digital facets of learning and the links with effective practice
Leadership appraisal helped us identify our strengths individually and as a team. He guided us on how to work with these strengths and support each other by delving into our potential as a team. Rob has a knack of being able to lead and support from the side without telling us what to do but by asking probing questions that enable us to think on a deeper level.
Shona has a strong grasp of the Digital Technologies Curriculum and the ability to see the bigger picture to cater to our situation, with the foresight to see what we need next.
Having Shona guide us through the curriculum and come in, to model how lessons can be run was a huge advantage. She had incredibly creative ideas to help implement the DTC, and as the one who was sceptical at the beginning, I can now happily say I’m hooked. Year 8 Level Leader.
It has been inspiring working alongside Shona as we develop the DT Curriculum for the Junior School – Years 0-2. She has excellent curriculum knowledge and she has a passion to see DT integrated into all areas of the curriculum
Our college is integrating the DTHM curriculum across our junior Ignite Programme. We wanted a PLD partner with a broad knowledge of all curriculum areas and expertise in cross-curriculum project-based integration to support us with our implementation. Our team has come away from our first session with a clear understanding of the curriculum and ideas to get started.
Tabitha is an exceptional coach, supporter and teacher. She has worked alongside our staff to enable them to become more confident with the use of technology to make their lives easier and to utilise more effectively in the classroom.
I would unreservedly recommend Victoria to any school looking for an external PLD facilitator to provide assistance in the roll-out of the ‘DTC’ in their schools.
Craig is an insightful, reflective, leadership coach. I have appreciated his questions, prompting and input to help ensure my own ongoing development.
Teachers and schools who haven’t yet had the fortunate of working alongside Victoria are really missing out. She is an absolute asset and I’m really grateful I get to learn from her as it’s making me a better teacher.
Rob’s in-depth and current knowledge of education practices ensured that our strategic planning sessions were focussed and relevant to the Waitaha setting and to its community. His input ensured that the end goals were relevant, achievable and innovative. Rob is extremely professional and he will deliver quality outcomes.
Learning Architects delivered highly engaging Digital Technologies professional development that our staff was able to take straight back and embed into their classrooms.
Learning Architects gave us some inspiring professional learning in digital technologies. I was feeling a little apprehensive about how this would work for my NE class but I am walking out feeling inspired and keen to try out the great ideas we have been given.
Prior to today’s session, I would not have considered doing digital technology with my learners. Victoria made learning very easy and fun. Her positive and supportive approach made it a very worthwhile PD session. Thank you so much.

Rob has increased our understandings of ourselves individually as leaders while enhancing our collective leadership by using our individual strengths and talents.
Rob makes me and think about the deeper issues facing our school and is supporting us to strengthen the teaching and learning across all aspects of the curriculum. His insight into leadership is helping to develop a stronger and more future-focused leadership team.
Your knowledge of how schools work and how to blend possibilities with technology is unique and makes this sort of community building possible!
Learning Architects knowledge and expertise were highly valued, together with his ability to connect with all members of the Kahui at their own capability level in a respectful and constructive way.
Learning Architects continue to positively support our CoL/Kāhui Ako, especially in our establishment phase.
The course was practicable, hands on, pace suited the participants as you could work as fast or as slow as you were capable. It has given me the opportunity to practice and to see the possibilities of what Google Docs can do.
There seemed to be a wide range of knowledge and capabilities within the group which were catered for in the presentation. I came away feeling very informed and wanting to learn more!
Catered to meet the needs of the individuals and the group.
To think about how we operate, looking at the bigger picture of our jobs and learning new methods to apply.
Love how the training is flexible and suited to each individuals context and needs.
Learning Architects catered so well for our staff with the wide range of experiences and confidence using computers and familiarity with Google. He inspired staff and since the day we have had staff that are keen to try things and are using their computer so much more than they ever have.
What really helped was the strategic, feet on the floor and considered recommendations. You don’t know what you don’t know so to have Rob push my thinking, share new ideas and guide into a better way was a huge win.
Rob provided both small and complex technical support with getting the most out of google apps has been helpful beyond explanation, many times.
He knew my technical strengths and limitations, and provided instant assistance with my next step learning, enabling me to move forward independently with the task that I was working on
This workshop was ideal for everything that I needed. It was a full day for the first day and I was able to utilize that skill and go home and practice. Then the second day and third day built on this.
I have learned how to streamline my processes so that they are efficient. So it’s much easier to find, track, and collate the information I need.
