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?

    I agree with you too. We are in the same boat, having just finished our ICT contract. Our students are reasonably well skilled at using a variety of web2 tools to enhance their learning, however staff are on various ends of the spectrum as far as ICT use goes. This tool will help us future proof and plan for ICT integration and devlopment as a staff. The framework provides clear prompts in terms of student and staff outcomes and the reflective nature of the questions ensure the focus is around student learning. I am excited that there is this generic tool that all schools can adopt and we don't have to keep re-inventing the wheel as it often the case. It is something I am excited about and will be sharing this enthusiastically with our staff, principal and hopefully our BOT.

    So the quesitrons arise 1) Why Use it? Because it provides a clear framework – identifies key areas around existing strengths and needs –enables these needs to be matched against outcomes and professional development and investment required to fulfil the school’s vision and ensures the school measures the ongoing impact of planned actions. I think the tool is brilliant and one I hope we adopt as an ongoing part of our strategic vision for our school.

    2) How could it be implemented and used? Firstly, I think it's important for staff to have a buy in by identifying areas of strengths & weaknesses, needs, professional development required, then articulating this and putting the plan into action. Involvement from the board is important too as they will need to support funding and it would, hopefully, form part of the curriculum review process - being part of the strategic goals for a school and annual review process. Again a great tool.
