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?

    Linda, I make a direct connection with you and your school!

    My school is also decile 2, and our students are certainly not from families who have access to ICT's at home either.  Therefore,  we have the moral obligation to teach our kids as much as we can, from as young as we can, about a range of ICT's.

    We had POD's at the back of classrooms which where shared between 2 rooms - great back in the day - but not any longer.  I personally have taken all my computers from the POD and bought them into the classroom, allowing us to use the space out back as a quiet, creative zone (kids had real ownership creating guidelines for the space's new use).  Staff are seeing the benefit of this and the learning conversations around ICT in the classroom has been fantastic!  So, we are in a phase of looking at how all the spaces can be redesignated with no cost.

    Fortunately for my school, we have a new ICT leader this year who has "written off" a load of clunky old PC's and ICT gear around the school and although our ratio of student:computer is not as good at the moment, we are building up to a better ratio of quality gear.  Teachers have compromised this year knowing our 3 yr ICT plan will cater to the ever changing world of ICT.  We also have the shared value/belief that ICT devices need to be mobile, so with this, it is easy to integrate computers back into the classrooms instead of the POD concept.  Staff also need to have the belief that ICT in integrated into the programme to enhance learning, not a tool that they go into another room to use for a prescribed piece of work.

    It is really easy to get hooked into the latest ICT fad, isn't it, but having a strategic plan around it's use makes decisions/purchases more meaningful.

    What do you think?
