Smile DISCUSSION FORUM: Digital Citizenship | Keeping our community digitally savvy at school and at home (May 7 - April 7) 

As we move towards resourcing schools with more e-tools, the access to web-based resources also increases. Providing safe and appropriate digital learning opportunities becomes an integral part of planning and implementing 'learning with digital technologies'. We ask, What policies, systems, strategies and resources are schools using to ensure students are safe on the Internet at school and at home?

And what about the parents? What is the role of the school when it comes to parents and Digital Citizenship? We'd love to hear how your school is addressing these important issues. This conversation will be hosted in the Digital Citizenship group.

Smile DISCUSSION FORUM: How do schools reading themselves for Modern Learning Pedagogies? (June 3 - July 3) 


Conversations about planning, resourcing, trialing and implementing Modern Learning Environments are hot topics trending across the VLN and the wider web. Which leads us to ask, What do leaders and teachers need to do to establish common understandings and expectations around Modern Learning Pedagogy? This conversation will be hosted in the Enabling e-Learning Professional Learning 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.

Teachers really want every student to succeed. But for some students it is sometimes hard to know where to start. That’s where Universal Design for Learning (UDL), coupled with technology, can be so powerful. In this webinar Lynne Silcock (CORE Education) and Linda Ojala (CORE Education & Silverstream School) will explain what Universal Design for Learning is and why it's important in your classroom. They will share their experiences on how they have applied the UDL framework to create an inclusive classroom environment. A support discussion will feature In the Enabling e-Learning | Teaching group. Hosted in Adobe Connect with Nathaniel Louwrens. REGISTER NOW!

Smile LIVE WEBINAR: Resourcing e-Learning (June 10, 3.45-4.45pm)


Audience:  Primary and secondary school leaders, e-learning leaders, aspiring principals interested in effective resourcing of e-learning.

If, “best practice e-learning enables accessible, relevant, and high-quality learning opportunities that improve student engagement and achievement” (Enabling e-Learning), how might resourcing decisions define processes required to ensure e-learning capacities get the best chance to grow – e.g: establishing priorities across all school resourcing, confirming a process for teacher capacities to grow, confirming processes for inclusion of student voice and community voice and involvement? Join us as we discuss the implications of effective e-learning with NAPP participants and invited guests (eLPF, CLA). A support discussion is now live in the Enabling e-Learning | Leadership group. Hosted in Adobe Connect with Tessa GrayREGISTER NOW!
