The e-Learning Planning Framework - how and why to use it | NAPP Kōrero 16

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 moved away from the computer lab as such and have 5 banks of laptops placed around the school for shared use and there is a booking system.This seems to be working well in terms of student needs. We still have a lab with teachers working on programmes that students can use with their work but it is not the only time they use IT.

    18 months ago we introduced the iPod as a learning tool and ran into all sorts of problems with our network capability etc. We had a complete server meltdown at the beginning of this year and are now confident our system can handle whatever we throw at it (Tui ad?). As a result the principal is introducing  'bring your own device' and it can be anything with wifi capability. In korero 17 we are discussing systems. I am am hopeful but am really unsure that we have the systems in place to ensure this will be successful. If it is not and we promote it we will have many upset parents as we did when we promoted the iPod, as many went and bought one for their child as a learning tool to find it was not used effectively in the classroom.

    Hi Paeariki, the problem with the iPods at the time was mainly our infrastructure and the server we had at the time. When we combined the extra devices needing wireless with all of the content students were needing to upload onto ultranet it caused the system to have a meltdown. This term we have our new systems up and running fully and the students sign in as a guest user as you might do when at a conference. Everything seems to be running fine at the moment. Now it is a matter of continuing to upskill teachers with their knowledge and understanding so that IT supports strong pedagogy.
