Welcome back  everyone! We are half way through term one and I have just had time to get back into this group .  As we mentioned at the end of last year, we held our facilitators leadership forum meeting and have decided to:

1.       Continue to encourage school leaders to hold their own f2f days based on their own needs.

2.      Help with online collaboration by providing support and opportunities for school leaders to use the online spaces to collaborate based on the needs and strengths document in the VLN CN Leaders site.

Number one is quite self-explanatory and your schools can develop these yourselves on a needs basis. The Taupo Connected Teachers held a very successful day this term.

 Number two we thought about holding an online week, maybe from 3.30 -4.30 Monday to Friday Term 1 or 2 depending on demand. This would involve the school leaders/teachers taking an online session on something that they have strength in. The other schools would nominate to come into the sessions that are relevant to them.  That way we can cover many needs and the schools only do what is relevant to them on that particular day. This will then give you the ability to organise more of these sorts of event yourselves in the coming year.

 The main reason we are doing this as it is the natural progression step from our f2f meeting held last year. We show cased the different types of online tools and now we are giving you the opportunity to use them.  It will also allow all of the outlying schools to be a part of it as well. This is based on need. There was a lot of talk last year around continuing and coming together as clusters of schools. So it is now up to you to come forward and get it going.

What do we think?

 If anyone is willing to take a session please contact rick.whalley@core-ed.ac.nz or contact your LwDT facilitator and we will start to organise the online sessions.  Support will be given to all who are wanting to take the online sessions. If you are wondering what you can do, please look at our needs and strengths doc that you produced  at our Hui last term.

 

Thanks all

 Looking forward to hearing from you with your contributions to our online sessions.
