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?

    This is fantastic timing for me. I am involved in a team right now setting the direction we sail in over the next 3-5 years.  We are reviewing what we are currently doing with elearning and making decisions about where we are heading.  It couldn't be better timing for me to be exploring these resources! Hooray!Laughing

    We started with forming a team including the principal, eLearning leader, ICT technician/teacher support, BOT member and myself (DP).  From this point we discussed a number of things including who else should have a voice (e.g. students).  Not long after this the eLearning lead teacher, myself and a couple of other teachers visited a range of schools in Auckland to explore what they were doing with space, furniture and personalised learning.  After this we developed an outline of our vision of where we are heading and shared it with the rest of staff. 

    The next steps are for us to decide how the eLearning Planning Framework can help us with our decision making and to obtain teacher and student input into our vision and strategic plan.  I am looking forward to the webinar on 5th September as I am hoping this will help us develop a clear understanding of how this tool can help us developing our strategic plan and next steps.  I believe very strongly in the importance for developing a shared vision to ensure everybody is on board and committed to the direction we head.

    Thank you for sharing these Jennifer.  I found your surveys great to use and it saved me so much time not having to make my own.  Cheers Laughing

    I really like this document too Bruce.  I think the diagram with the self-reflection questions are useful for any teaching & learning inquiry not just for eLearning.

    We have just used this tool to complete a self-review of where we are at and indenitfy our goals and actions for the next couple of years.  This tool made that process clear and consise with an explicit direction to move us forward.  Interestingly the key focus needs to be moving staff from thinking about ICT as a sometimes tool to thinking collaboration & higher order thinking through e-learning.  Some of our staff are well down that path but we need to get everyone taking steps 'further up the ladder' and in-particular make sure we are providing PD to our teacher-aide staff who seem to be much further behind than our teachers.

    Yes we already have done this!  In term 2  and 3 we sent two groups of teachers to visit a range of schools in Auckland to see what they were doing with:

    • Physical space (eg breakout rooms)
    • Furniture
    • Personalised learning
    • eLearning

    It was fantastic PD and a great opportunity to gather ideas which have helped us to shape our eLearning strategic plan that we are now developing.
