Recommendation 32 Technical support
Recommendation 32. We recommend that the Government consider how to ensure access to necessary technical support, to ensure the use of ICT in schools is effective.
Comment: All major secondary schools should have technical support staff. Teacher online voluntary groups can provide support on subject matters.
N4L could provide guidance and model documents on preparing contract terms to go out to tender.
Smaller schools will need local area support groups which can possibly be contracted out commercially subject to local knowledge of the NZ school model and subject content. --Ian Mitchell FIITP 00:00, 23 January 2013 (UTC)
