Digital Circus was started by a couple of frustrated teachers who felt their region didn’t get the support it needed. Leaving the classroom, this husband and wife team bought a van to travel the region to run workshops to inspire teachers about digital technology. The idea was to set up at a school for a couple of days, invite other local schools to share the experience and then pack down and move on to the next venue - hence the name Digital “Circus” came about.
When the MoE announced the new PLD system in 2017, Digital Circus joined the panel of PLD providers and their team became Accredited PLD facilitators.
We now have worked with over 300 schools and thousands of teachers nationwide and are more passionate than ever about working with teachers to empower active change to transform teaching and learning.
We are currently working through updating our logo and expanding our offerings in schools, businesses, and communities.
Our new name and logo is a nod to our roots and a nod to the innovation and future-focused kaupapa we have.
