An exciting new development in New Zealand primary schools is that new teaching spaces have been designed to enhance the use of personalised learning and digital technology. School leaders would be interested in hearing how three Auckland primary schools responded to the challenges of implementing new pedagogical practices in new futuristic spaces. The qualitative study being reported showed there was much enthusiasm in embracing the innovative and collaborative approaches that were essential to personalise the learning journey for children. It also revealed that the way personalised learning was interpreted varied across the schools. All schools were making progress but a very different rates. Leaders, teachers and parents in this study faced both success and challenges in moving forward but remained strongly committed to effective implementation efforts. [Presented by Jo Howse].
