    Kia ora Amy, my name is Daphne - I'm facilitator (sorry not a teacher) currently working in the LwDT PLD project. I thought I'd drop in and offer a response to your question about the e-Learning Planning Framework, and how we, together with schools I've worked with have used the tool. Actually the I work in Māori medium settings, and we use the other framework - Te Rangitukutuku/Māori medium e-Learning Planning Framework. Both frameworks are designed to support school-wide review processes etc etc - Karen tells the story better with regards to the eLPF - and Kathe gives an overview of MMeLPF if you're interested :)

    Why do the schools I work with use MMeLPF? - in the main, because I said so :-) First however, we take some time to grow some understanding of the tool, it's whakapapa - background, purpose, the way it's been put together. We then dive into the MMeLPF online tool play in a 'play-time' survey to generally have a look see. I'd like to think teachers are feeling pretty good about the purpose of the MMeLPF/eLPF by this time - and we dive straight in and complete an online survey smiley. Sorry, I'm omitting the tool admin sides in here - in order to 'play in' and 'dive in' to an online survey - schools do need to register to use the tool first (registering for eLPF), and and an online survey is automatically generated for your school to use. I make a separate 'play-time' survey for staff to tutu in - and we use the generated one to complete and analyse :) If you really want to know more about that - let me know.

    Essentially, we use of eLPF/MMeLPF online tool to gain a perspective of where the school is AT in terms of e-learning capability. Staff have their own perspective of their schools eLearning capability - the eLPF can provide a school-wide perspective, that is drawn together from all whom have completed the online survey. Its a non-biased, cumulative view.

    In my opinion, the magic begins to happen for a school at the analysis end of the process. The tool provides a starting point in the form of data. Unfortunately it doesn't tell you What to do, nor how to do it. The Enabling eLearning Website & the VLN Enabling eLearning group are a great resource in this regard.  The staff I work with use the results from MMeLPF, which we draw down, to talk about, pick apart, debate, negate, affirm, wonder about, ponder upon. Staff move forward select and prioritise area/s (dimensions) for development and or consolidation. They(staff) try and prioritise areas that can align to school wide strategic goals. From here, and where they exist - we follow school wide inquiry processes - developing a school-wide inquiry into practice. We use the tool again later on down the track to make a comparison - before and after, incorporating also other forms of evidence, school wide inquiry evidence/data, observational evidence.

    Oh dear, how I've gone on. That's all from me :-)

    He tika tāu e hoa, ahakoa te aha me mihi ka tika. Ngā mihi me ō whakaaro Jonas :) Mihi where ever and whenever, be it virtually or physically.

    ngā manaakitanga, Daph :)

    How about it whānau, mihi, whether informally or formal is a tikanga that transfers quite easily in to an online realm. In a room filled with people (ahakoa te rūma) it is natural to want to engag in the whakawhanaungatanga process, how can this tiakanga be managed online?

    Kia ora Manu, ngā mihi ki a koe me ō hoa kaiako e tuhi nei i ō koutou whakaaro. E tautoko ana au i te whakaaro nei, ahakoa te kaupapa me mihi tētahi ki tētahi ka tika. Whether virtual or face to face space, mihi is a tikanga that transfers quite comfortably in both worlds.

    He uri ahau nō Mataatua waka, nō Tūhoe me Te Whakatohea iwi, he kaitakawaenga Māori mō LwDT.  Ngā mihi ki a tātou katoa. Tikanga of karakia starting a hui is automatic, its a norm present in my whānau life and my work life. When meeting with colleagues face to face, we start and conclude hui with karakia and waiata. So it seemed only natural to continue this practice when meeting in a virtual environment, using online tools such as skype, google hangout, appear.in - although the time lag in google hangout often makes for an interesting waiata session laugh....How do you and your akonga maintain tikanga Māori in a virtual environment? What tikanga transposes naturally in to an online environment? 

    Ngā mihi, nā Daph

    'Ko te kai a te rangatira he kōrero', kia kaha tātou ki te tautoko i tō tātou reo i te ao i te pō :)

    Anei anō ētahi rauemi e tautoko ana i te whakaako i tō tātou reo ki rō whānau, kura rānei e whakaako ana mā te huarahi reo Māori, kei te paetukutuku o Mātauranga Māori, kei te whārangi o Te Reo Māori

    Fabulous - am looking forward to just hearing about what others are doing, have done in relation to supporting whānau, connecting with whānau...Laughing
