Reasons to enrol your class(es) in LEARNZ virtual field trips:
Emailed newsletters are sent out to teachers of enrolled classes. Their main purpose is to direct teachers to newly released material.
- 1st Newsletter - approximately 1 month before the field trip, when Discovery reading pages and quizzes are released and web conference bookings are requested.
- 2nd Newsletter - the Monday of the week of the web conferences for the field trip, when the Google Earth tour and videos are released.
- 3rd Newsletter - the week after the field trip, when recordings of the web conferences and the evaluation form are released and a reminder is included about the Field Trip Challenge.
If you enrol after the thrid newsletter, you may not be sent any emails but are free to use all the field trip material.

4. Evidence of Usage
Providing us with evidence of your use of LEARNZ helps keep LEARNZ free.
We are able to offer LEARNZ free to teachers in New Zealand state, integrated and registered private schools because of financial contributions from our partners. It is important that we provide evidence to them that their funding has created useful educational outcomes for New Zealand learners.
