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?

    We have used the e-learning framework as a basis for the leaders of ICT to engage in school wide strategic planning. We have found the document itself to be thought-provoking and interesting, however, when it came to finding out where our staff think they are ‘at’, we moved towards the Ministry of Education document ‘Ultra-fast broadband in schools’ as the measures of ‘digital capacity’ were somewhat more straightforward for a whole-staff session. With some tweaking the staff can assess themselves quickly. We felt that to use the e-learning individual teacher reflection we would have to spend some time defining and considering many of the terms and as we move into encouraging all students to bring a device, we must consider our practice, we will have to make this professional learning sit alongside our already determined focus on literacy.

    We are as many secondary schools are, on the top of a very big slope with the change of ‘learning’ being a fast ride down for our teachers. It is my observation that some are already ‘empowering’ – using the intranet to post calculus lessons and have the classroom operate as a ‘tutorial’, many are moving from ‘engaging’ to ‘extending’ and this is where we are changing our focus on what it means to learn in a secondary environment. There are some also, who are finding the nudge over the slope something they choose to resist. We will only see this change when we have reliable infrastructure that supports the increasingly online environment.

    I think there are interesting issues being raised about equity. The further we are going into our e-learning inquiry the more we are trying to grapple with the inequity of access. We are a decile 9 urban secondary school and yet we have a number of students who do not and will not bring devices to school that can support a browser. Our inclination is to supply that device during the day, however, we are still then in a situation where that learner in unable to access information at home. At the same time, the Senior Management are less inclined to fund desktop computers because they will become obsolete. How far can schools go to address inequity in e-learning?
