    As part of my National Aspiring Principals Programme, my inquiry ventured into how we can effectively implement iPads within special education. I used the Teaching as Inquiry Cycle with a trial group of students that you see on this Prezi (along with several videos of the students) and presented the process of my inquiry... as it continues to the whole school as every teacher will have use of an iPad in their class in 2013.

    I am delighted to see the movement from “developing teacher capability” to the focus on impacting student learning when referring to e-learning. At the beginning of our ICTPD contract there was quite a focus on teaching the teachers HOW to use the technology and HOW to feel confident when using ICT with students. There was focus on WHAT technology and tools they would use for their ICT lesson.

    Now with the influence of the e-learning planning framework, staff are able to reflect on WHY they are implementing specific tools and technologies to benefit their students learning.

    One ongoing lesson for our cluster has been the dimension: Leadership of e-learning. The key to the indicator statements is having a Principal that ensures e-learning is prioritized, or at least well-supported within the school.
