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?

    Hi Freya, I too can see similarities with your situation.

    In our school, I could see real value in using this framework to encourage staff to consider where they are at currently. Discussions around the subject of e-learning at our school have been met with mixed responses, as you might expect. Many people agree that there is a need to be ‘using technology more’ with their classes. But they point to issues around access and infrastructure, time management and lack of knowledge/expertise as being barriers to them. This would indicate that as a staff, we are still at the ‘emerge’ phase of the cycle, with a few of us heading into ‘engaging’

    In terms of planning, I think that the framework could be useful in our situation for helping us to identify at both an individual and school-wide level where we are at in terms of our own digital literacy. This means that we actually need to gather relevant data from staff, students, whanau and community. As a school, we need to establish a clear direction to paddle in. More importantly we need to get staff (and community) to understand WHY we need to move in this direction. The framework, along with case studies and resources could be helpful in allowing us to see HOW we can get there.
