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 Linda

    You make raise valid points about the issue of equity. While many of our students have iPhones, smart phones and iPods. Many do not have laptops, iPads or access to computers at home and limited access to the internet. Like your school funding is an issue at our school as well. Althrough resourcing we have started to replace/upgrade computers.

    It is essential that students have access to ICT so that they have the opportunity to use technology in a range of learning contexts while they are at school. One limiting feature at a secondary school is to gain access to the computer suites.

    There are certainly  equity issues in terms of BYOD devices to e-learning and access to the internet. In Whanganui,  the District Council has initiated a trial programme where free wireless broadband access was made available to local residents/householders. It is my understanding that the council will start to roll this initiative out to other suburbs. Another initiative is a local trust, "We Learn", that is being driven by local primary & secondary school principals. The focus of the trust is to enable each student in the school to access & purcahse a notebook device to use in school. The "We Learn" trust is hoping to be able to provided the notebooks for $4 aproxiamtely on a two year lease to own.

    What does this mean to our students? That those who have limited access and knowledge of ICT will now have a very reasonably priced device and access to the internet. Taking this one step further the families/parents/caregivers also benefit from exposure of technology - ako/akonga at it's best.

    After reading through the e-learning framework over the last week and reviewing case studies form other schools, I have found the e learning framework to be a starting point to begin discussion around what our strategic plan will be for e-learning. Today in fact we have a professional development event around the implementation of student/home intranet at our college. We are at the emerging phase...(we being the staff..as many of our student's are already digital natives
