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?

    Your post interests me Daryl as we are at the stage of decomissioning our computer pod in favour of a portable, bookable system. We go live with UFB in February, and have great wifi connectivity so now we are in the position to think about what type of devices we go with. I was at a conference recently where 'bring your own device' was a frequently used term - with the socio-economic status of our families this won't be a viable option. I was wondering, what were the specific problems you encountered with using ipods? This is one of the options we are considering.

    The approach at our school has been totally adhoc, purchases are made at the whim of a few staff members who are extremely vocal about the types of devices they consider to be, in their words 'really cool'!  To my knowledge there has never been a requirement to investigate how a particular device adds value in an educational setting, nor has there been any need to justify a purchase in terms of planned learning experiences.  I see the eLPF as an integral tool to give schools an idea of how to approach the vastness of e-learning.  I have seen a huge amount of money invested at our school only to see (or rather not see) devices locked up in cupboards because teachers don't how to manage the use of the  devices in a classroom setting, let alone imbed e-learning in their practice.  I think the tool takes us back to what is important and that is leadership with strategic intent - so for me, that is a key dimension and a goo dplace to start.
