    Just listened to yesterday's webinair about the e-learning Planning Framework. This looks like an incredibly timely document for where we are at at the moment. Time for the pockets of teachers to help schools become e-learning schools. Love the driving ideas of partnerships, whole school development, its link to NZC and Ka hikitia! I agree that many of us are already doing this in our classrooms and that's why we are collaborating on line. I do believe though, it is only pockets where this is happening. It is fantastic that early adaptors are able to use a framework to help their schools develop their same journey... Wish I had made it to the chat - appreciate that it was recorded for access after the fact! Sealed

    Hi Clair, thanks for taking the time for this feedback.

     

    I agree. I think the timing for the NZ e-Learning Planning Framework is perfect, especially as we face changes in education - with influences from global trends, technological opportunities, UFBis, a localized curriculum and a continued focus on cultural responsiveness.

     

    I think you’re so right in saying schools and teachers have been doing this on their own already - with passionate leaders finding ways to make these connections and it has been hugely valuable having teachers share their practice and collaborate about their interests/areas of need in professional learning networks like Twitter and the VLN. For more e-learning discussions go to

    This eLPF will help teachers to build e-learning capacity by identifying and developing areas of skill acquisition, skills in practice as well as understanding of the benefits of ICT integration to learning. The framework will also support leaders to identify their school’s strengths and address effectiveness and sustainability factors when integrating ICTs into their school’s systems, practices and processes at the organizational level. The picture is wholistic – from clarifying a vision for e-learning to embedding this throughout documentation (strategic planning) through to classroom implementation. 

     

    At this stage, the framework is in draft form and additional support will be provided to help contextualize the descriptor statements - with examples and supplementary resources as well as a methodology for it’s use.

     

    During the consultation phase, we would love to hear your thoughts, so please feel free to complete the online consultation survey. It is designed to take approximately 20 minutes to complete: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/elearningplanningframework

    I have developed a couple of websites which may help teachers: www.literacylogic.com and www.atcoam.com (which I am currently working on at full speed to be ready for anyone wanting the resources beginning 2012).
