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?

    I'm looking forward to reading through these posts. Part of my responsibilities this year was to write the eLearning strategic plan. I spent quite some time gathering resources and examples such as the eLearning Planning Framework. What I discovered was that we couldn't move forward with any sort of plan until we had a clear vision and overall strategic plan.

    We had spent some time developing a curriculum. With changes to management this process became stagnant. We now have remnants of a great curriculum but no cohesion. The first port of call was finding all the parts and analysing what we had and didn't have. We have now recognised that there is a lot of work to do as a whole staff in identifying and clarifying our vision. Once this is clear then eveything else can hang on it.

    Another of our struggles is our network. We have had great plans in the past, rolling out whole school initiatives. Unfortunately, we realised that if the whole school buys in, then not everyone can access the resource at once. Fibre will hopefully make a big difference to us but this is not an option in the foreseeable future.

    eLearning is something that is very dear to my heart. I have a passion for the engagement and learning oppotunities it brings. I feel very strongly, however, that we don't just jump on the bandwagon or buy the latest gadget unless we have thought about student acheivement. We need to be sensible about purchases and clear about our intent. It should always be about teaching and learning and not the technology!

    I'm going to take the time now to read through other posts, although I have a lot more to say on this!! Wink
