    Interesting to see today's announcement from the Beehive showing the results of an independent survey, that the Game development industry in NZ is on a record-breaking rise. 

    “The government has the ambitious goal of growing ICT so it’s the second largest contributor to GDP by 2025. Our tech sector is already growing but we need do things differently if we are to achieve our ICT goal. It’s vitally important to this Government that people’s well-being is at the heart of this and everything we do,” Clare Curran says.

    ICT capabilities, Digital Technologies and trends in innovation and business, beyond school - what are your thoughts about these trends and connections?
