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?

    Hi Catherine, I work in 23 schools helping with teaching and learning using ICT. As you can imagine there is a huge spread of needs as far as infrastructure goes, and I completely understand the frustrations you feel.

    As a school you may feel 'emergent', but have any of your teachers 'extended' themselves on the sly? I'll explain what I mean Smile A number of teachers I work with have an iPhone or smartphone on a smartphone plan, and have cottoned onto using their smartphone to 'bypass' their school infrastructure.  I have one teacher I work with in a technology poor environment (tela laptop is the only classroom computer, old wireless, no digital camera etc), but she has an iPhone on a plan... She has the blogger app set up to her class blog, so at any point she can take a photo, joosh it up with another app (she likes Infinicam), discuss a post with the kids, and whip it up into cyberspace without her school infrasructure getting in the way.  She also uses pinterest and instagram in a similar way.  So to me, she is using her technology (not the school's) to co-construct reflection with the kids.

    Any similar experiences?
