In 2017 EdTechTeam ANZ, now a Chromebook Reseller, worked in every Australian state or territory and on both islands of New Zealand, impacting 4,912 educators in partnership with Departments of Education, Catholic and Adventist school systems, and independent schools across both countries. The team is particularly proud of partnering with the NSW Department of Education to provide quality professional development to teachers in remote locations, and of the ongoing relationship with the ACT Department of Education to provide professional learning to teachers across the Territory. Professional development from EdTechTeam is now accredited by NSW through NESA and ACT through TQI, which helps teachers in those states reach mandatory accredited hour requirements. For events in New Zealand, EdTechTeam ensures that respect for the indigenous population is offered through traditional Maori welcome ceremonies and by recruiting Maori educators as presenters and speakers. EdTechTeam ANZ also donated prizes to local Google Educators Groups and donated time or resources (including cardboard for VR treatments) to children’s hospitals in both Melbourne and Sydney.
