Russell Burt, principal of Point England School in the suburbs of Auckland, New Zealand, accepted the award on behalf of the cluster of thirteen schools that he represents.

The Manaiakalani Cluster has received numerous awards in the past, but the INACOL blended learning award marks the first time that the cluster received such significant international recognition.

The original designers of Hapara’s first Teacher Dashboard, educators and education leaders in the Manaiakalani Cluster have been using technology to further their pedagogical ambitions for nearly seven years.

Commited to the practices of microteaching, student inquiry, and performance presentation, cluster educators have demonstrated that focussing on core, research supported teaching and learning practices pays off. University researchers have documented the progress of students in the cluster and found that student achievement has risen significantly since educators have been able to amplify their teaching and learning best practices with the aid of technology.
