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?

    Our school is decile 7. Our ICT teams have just changed over. All new staff in this department this year. It seems like we have a long way to go to get up to date with our technology. We have a number of bookable spaces. But is seems in a school of 1800 you are always struggling to find an opening in any computer lab. Or the internet is down? the students also seemed so more advanced in this day and age. Funding is definitely an issue.

    E-learning is a “new learning” area for me. I can see it slowly taking shape at our school. It is met with mixed responses. A number of staff are of the opinion that they want to use technology more in their classes. There are always the issues around this. The availability of the technology is a huge issue. Then there are the staff who do not really see the importance of it or are resistant to the change.


    I would like to see our school implement some form of strategy based on the E-Learning Framework. But this will be dependent on the hardware and the network capabilities of a school. If the ICT Dept struggles with resourcing. Then all the plans and visions are hard to reach.

    Alastair, I agree that upskilling can be very daunting for some staff. take me for example. Im surely a dinosaur when it comes to technology. I realise that i have to stay up with the times. But this will become such an important part of all classrooms in the 21 century.

    Good point Tim. It is the rapid speed at which it evolves that leaves me bewildered. What today might be the trend is not the case tomorrow.
