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?

    There are a wide range of ICT skills not just in the staff. Students also have a wide range of skills and availability and access to ICT. As a classroom teacher upskilling and having a go at using el learning can be daunting for some staff. Certainly teaching and learning  is changing rapidly and the use of elearning inclass and as a tool for all hours is an intriguing aspect of 21st century education. It's interesting to see how BYOD will evolve in that if you set up a wireless net work and encourage BYOD will that create an inequity amongst students? The rich v the poor who can't afford new apples ipods, samung galaxy or tablets or laptops. Some students in rural areas still have limited internet access at home.  so the flip the classroom approach of putting lessons in the cloud or sending students information before class to learn at home and using class time working on the content would suit urban students not all rural students. 

    Setting the framework and structure in place and then having the staff develop the skills and work in PPL groups might be an approach to have a successful elearning community. Certainly at our school a large number of students are regular users of moodle for accessing data.

    The frame work is superb and it makes a leader ponder where they are in relation to the framwork, its phases and dimensions. At our school we look to be emerging in some aspects and look to move in to engaging. Setting up the conditions to allow that to occur is a challenge. Giving the staff the skills and challenging them to rethink their approach to teaching and learning involving technology can be daunting for a lot of staff. We have conditions set for BYOD to roll out and now its a matter of best practice around that. Having forums is a great aid and being innovative and a risk taker should be encouraged in staff in all curriculum areas. Getting the buy in  is the greatest hurdle. 

    For planning the framework gives the school a tool to analyse where it is and then forces it to think about how best to move forward.
