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?

    Kia ora koutou,

    It was great to "attend" the webinar last week and learn how others are using the ELPF and to also read thee posts.

    It's been a great document in our school as a number of ICT infrastructure developments have occured this year (SNUPS and wireless, and an eLearning class ntroduced in Year 9) we have also had e-Learning as a PD focus and many areas of the school have created and developed blended learning experiences for their students as part of their Teaching as Inquiry projects for the year. Moodle has proved a great platform for this.

    The ELPF was a great resource for our ICT committee to look at earlier in the year. I had the task of introducing and explaining it.  We were able to work through it and establish where we were "at" and discuss how diverse our school was in terms of skill levels and access to resources in this area. It also helped clarify for the group that we needed to look first at the learning outcomes we wanted - much time and effort had previously distracted by whizzy "stuff". It was vital we went back to focus on learning and then figure out the pathways we needed to get there. It has been great to hear from the inquiry project presentations that teachers have now clearly identified the learning they want to happen and then the resources and infrastructure they'll need to deliver it.

    I am delighted that our school now has a Strategic Plan for ICT that this team has worked on, we've made links with outside agencies to support us and we've got BOT approval.

    I notice many people say the ELPF was timely - I do agree with a previouse comment that it's timely at any stage of a school's development.

Join this group to contribute to discussions.
