Pond, the Network for Learning (N4L) portal, is now open to all educators working in New Zealand schools. The ‘Make a Splash’ programme is also being introduced so schools can self-manage their journey into the Pond environment.
The ‘Make a Splash’ programme provides a scaffolded and wholesale way for a whole school to use Pond. The programme allows an interested teacher or school leader to follow and monitor Pond users, and to offer support and guidance.
It also enables the steady integration of Pond, and teaches about the possibilities and opportunities it provides to educators.

For those teachers who have been waiting patiently, Pond access is now accessible with an Education Sector Logon with specific Pond Entitlement. Teachers with access to e-asTTle will likely have the correct entitlements.
