How do you connect to your community when you can't always meet face-to-face? Some schools use e-newsletters and emails, others are complementing these with social media, such as blogs, Facebook and Twitter.

The e-Learning Planning Framework reminds us that we can work with our communities using technologies, as well as helping them understand the impact of technologies on learners. For more information on how we can use technologies is this way, check out this resource on Enabling e-Learnng: http://www.elearning.tki.org.nz/Professional-learning/e-Learning-Planning-Framework2/Principals-and-school-leaders/Beyond-the-classroom


How might Rachel's ideas be extended to your school? Have you tried something similar?
