Education

In addition to being an entertaining and inspiring broadcast series, Dream Catchers is an important, ground breaking and wide reaching educational project and has been granted charitable status in the UK on the strength of its educational advancements.

The broadcast version will feature 10 themed half hour episodes scheduled to appear on a Sunday evening in New Zealand with the option to sell the series internationally. There will be two versions of the online series; one will encourage interactive input from students to allow them to assemble the information in a way that is most effective for them and the other will be a streamed edited version for targeted online platforms.

Dream Catchers will reach every school and student in New Zealand with the support of the government backed Network for Learning (N4L) initiative and it's digital content and services platform, POND. We will be able to make educational history by providing interactive case studies, career specific information and direct links to established Kiwis who will share their experiences with new generations.

My greatest excitement working in education in the 21st century is watching resources such as the Dream Catchers videos being accessed easily by students. N4L is perfectly placed to support the rollout of the Dream Catchers videos through its Managed Network connection in schools, ensuring a reliable viewing experience, and the ability of Pond to connect the Dream Catchers video to learners and to other relevant career resources. It is a privilege to be part of a project that will bring great inspiration and encouragement to New Zealanders of all ages. Carolyn Stuart, Education Sector Lead, Network for Learning

Careers NZ and universities will also be linked to Dream Catchers.

Dream Catchers will have far reaching international presence through targeted online platforms via its partnerships with Kea and other partners that can initiate and deliver much needed practical career advice, inspiration and contacts to all New Zealanders around the world.
