Connections between school and home/parents/whānau are recognised as an important part of a child's education. How can we foster the home-school relationships to get parents on board and contributing to the development of the school curriculum? Come join us in Enabling e-Learning | Beyond the Classroom group, when this thread becomes live to discuss how the school curriculum can be developed in consultation with whānau and the wider community.


imageSmile FORUM: Part 3: Personalising learning: A strategy for review, 15 September -15 October

This year we have dedicated several virtual learning opportunities to discuss what personalising learning means for NZ schools. This forum attempts to illustrate possible strategies and methodologies for deploying resources for learning (teachers, time, spaces, technology) more flexibly, to help meet learners’ needs. We'd love for you to share your experiences in this area, once the thread becomes live in the Enabling e-Learning | Leadership group. 

Your input and ideas are valued and welcome in all of these forum discussions. What we need is the voice of many!

Smile WEBINAR: Supporting secondary school maths through digital technologies, Wednesday 20 August, 3.45 – 4.45pm

 This webinar is supported by a thread in the e-Learning in Primary maths group. You're invited to come and share your own experiences during the webinar. Please feel free to add your thoughts in this discussion post also. REGISTER NOW!
