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?

    Yes I agree with many that have posted that the eLPF has been timely!
    I was encouraged at the NAPP Hui when it was presented to us by Derek W and have used it in our school's ICT Strategic plan.
    We have an ICT specialist teacher and a curriculum team and our specialist has been working on the strategy implementation.
    The framework has allowed us to analyse where we are as an organisation and what parts of our school need assistance with PD and procurement of tools.
    We decided this year to release him from teaching specifically graphics and see how he can assist the classroom teachers with integrating the technologies so they can be empowered and prof developed in their environments. 
    We also did a stock take of what we have and what we need to add to the fleet.
    We definitely agree that infrastructure and school wide and individual professional development is a major area of attention and we can add all the bells and whistles in terms of devices but if we dont have infrastructure and PD plan sorted, their will be resistent staff and white elephant resources.
    Since the implementation of the framework we have an idea of who needs what training and where we need to resource next or find the funding.
    Our specialist teacher is so invaluable as he sees the need and offers afterschool seminars that are not compulsory and staff select in to the topics he offers. These sessions count towards their PD and we have seen a marked up take on the usage of gear, less problems reported about skills based attainment and suggeston from teachers for more tools to resource.
    We are working closely with our eLPF plan and it is now considered and integrated with the other parts of our annual school professional development plan.
    A grateful recipient!
