Kia ora, welcome to Computers in New Zealand Schools: Learning, Teaching,Technology, 24(3).

This special edition of Computers in New Zealand Schools introduces readers to the concept of knowledge building as a pedagogical approach and also offers some preliminary reports that should provide some ideas of how knowledge-building classes can be implemented in New Zealand classrooms, as well as in distance classes. It is hoped that this special issue will stimulate further discussions of how children and young people can be supported to become knowledge creators in the 21st century.
