Smile DISCUSSION FORUM: e-Learning plans/goals for 2015 (February 26 - March 26)


During the holidays there were many discussions, questions, tweets and blog posts shared about how you intend to continue to learn and plan for 2015. It’s exciting to see so many dedicated educators engaged in this way for our children. With all the learning and planning that has been done already, it would be great if you could share one or two of your e-learning related plans or goals, so that Enabling e-Learning community members can connect, relate and/or support one another. This up-coming thread will feature in the Enabling e-Learning | Teaching group. 


Smile DISCUSSION FORUM: What will we see in e-Learning in 2015 (March 17 - April 17)


At this time of year, a lot of people like to make predictions as to what is going to happen in certain aspects of life over the next 12 months (social, political, economics, education, technology) , none more so than the predictions about emerging technologies. This is your opportunity to join in this thread and contribute to our very own NZ education/e-learning predictions discussion for 2015. This up-coming thread will feature in the Enabling e-Learning | Technologies group. 

Your input and ideas are valued and welcome in all of these forum discussions. This is your community, so please feel free to add your ideas, experience, expertise or wonderings.
