Sustainable Strategies: Integrating e-learning, leadership inquiry and classroom practice | Kōrero 14 2015

Resources and Discussion through the Years

Use these resources and Korero to gain a clear picture of leadership of e-learning planning over the past three years.

  • Using the e-Learning Planning Framework – this is useful in guiding us through the use of the e-LPF
  • The e-Learning Planning Framework (eLPF) online tool is live for all schools/kura on the Enabling E-Learning  (EEL) site with full instructions and support material. Once you have created your account you can then manage your schools surveys within the e-Learning Planning Framework online tool. The MMeLPF /te Rangitukutuku (Maori Medium eLPF) tool is also available as a download on EEL.

2015 Korero 14: Sustainable strategies: integrating e-learning, leadership inquiry and classroom practice

During the last three years the discussion in this strategic Korero has focused on leadership learning about the e-Learning Planning Framework and how to use it. (See just above)

We think this year’s NAPP cohort is stepping past this level of understanding and needs to focus on teaching/learning transformations that are going on as school leaders apply inquiry learning and use the e-LPF. 

Professional learning using teacher inquiry

In this Enabling e-Learning video, Chris Allen, principal of Sacred Heart Girls' College, and Mike Wilson, ICT cluster director, share why they chose to use a teacher inquiry model as a focus for professional learning and why that approach has been so successful.

Leadership inquiry and use of the e-Learning Planning Framework should fit well together.

  • Use the elements of leadership inquiry and the e-Learning Planning Framework to support discussion on how they have in specific instances brought or are bringing about transformative change to teaching and or leadership practice
  • Explain how specific parts of the inquiry cycle, shown below, and the e-Learning Planning Framework have worked together for you and your school

    We talk about wanting our students to learn through 'doing' and finding relevance in what they are learning, and linking it to their own worlds.  This is really the same for teachers.  And when implementing a new, innovative, and scary-for-some approach to usual classroom practice, it can be just as important for teachers to learn through 'doing' as well.  

    The dilemma we faced as a school four years ago, was 'where do we start'.  Our travels around schools in NZ also discussed the absolute importance of pedagogy before device.  We took this on board, however, knew that we also had staff willing, ready, and thirsty for change - we had to act.  And we did. 

    This was an Inquiry in itself.  Bringing in BYOD into classes, and learning through trial and error.  Some things were amazing, some things were a failure, but all things we did were about improving achievement and engagement.  

    The e-LPF came after that.  We found it easier to engage with the dimensions after actually having sound experience to work from.  Understanding what worked, why it worked, the data it gave us, which devices were more beneficial, the best techniques etc really helped form the platform to be able to engage in the deeper level thinking.  

    Whether it was the right way or not, in the end, it was a start, and it has now gained a life-force of its own, and is becoming just 'something we do'
