NAPP logoHaere mai to all NAPP akonga! Welcome to the Enabling e-Learning: Leadership group, and to this kōrero, exploring how we might use the e-Learning Planning Framework to help our schools develop future-focused learning for a digital world. On behalf of the Blended e-Learning team and our wider community, I hope you'll enjoy rich discussion over the coming weeks.Laughing

 How do you know what your school needs, in terms of using ICTs for effective learning? Where do you start to plan?

The e-Learning Planning Framework (English-medium), developed by Te Toi Tupu on behalf of the Ministry of Education, offers a roadmap to

  • support schools to review where they are, 
  • prioritise where they might go next, and 
  • plan the steps to get there.

The framework is supported by examples and resources for leaders and teachers, not least of which is the Enabling e-Learning hub on TKI and the VLN.  Have a look at this video below that unpacks the key ideas, and browse the links above.

What aspects of the framework look useful for your school - and why? How might you use it for planning?

    First of all, participating in last week’s webinar was fantastic.  I feel I learned loads, about the framework and also the webinar process.  Thank you Karen!  I’m looking forward to joining in with more webinars soon.   

    Evidence for making decisions about where my school might be positioned on the framework will come from a range of sources including:

    Student attainment data, consultation with staff and community.  Student voice, Strategic Plan, ERO, e-learning technological capability and community links.  Software and resources available and  recent ICT staff PD.

    As others have already said, the introduction to the eLPF comes at a perfect time for planning next year.  We have a senior leadership team strategic planning day next week, and part of that day will involve using the framework’s five over-arching dimensions to ensure that all aspects and stakeholders are recognised and catered for.  It will help identify where we are, and where we need to go, and assist us in making informed and sustainable decisions.

    A good place for us to start, will be to look through the eLPF as a senior leadership team, and develop a strategic direction.  We will use the five dimensions rubric (p3) to self -assess where we are at as a school.   We will then follow the “self-review tool” cycle diagram, beginning at step one (Where are our students at?) before moving on to step two (where are our staff at?).  Step two is likely to be conducted at a teacher only day before the 2013 school year begins.

    Next week we will also be planning our school TAI for 2013, which is literacy based, however we will use the framework to keep in mind how we can integrate ICT in the process.
