Success for boys is a subsection of New Zealand Curiculum Online.


Using e-learning in the classroom can motivate and engage boys and support their learning in new ways.

Information Communication Technology (ICT) is visual, interactive, and provides opportunities for learners to express their learning creatively. It also allows students to share and collaborate with communities of learners beyond the classroom.

E-learning can offer boys richer, more customised learning pathways that take account of individual, cultural, or developmental differences.

E-learning resources

A number of e-learning resources that are available to schools are supported by professional learning programmes. These resources extend your options to personalise learning to meet the needs of boys in your school. Here’s a sample of what’s available:
