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

    Hi Steve,

    Our school is one who has used KAMAR to improve our communication with the parent community and I know of others who have done the same thing. We've shifted from a labour intensive bi-annual reporting system which required about 7 weeks from beginning to end by the time reports had gone through teachers, form teachers, deans and the Principal. We now have a system where each subject teacher comments during the term on a student's progress. The comments are feed-forward by nature and housed on a KAMAR parent portal. The comments are more frequent but much briefer and more specific. At the end of each term, parents should have a brief comments on the child's progress in each of their subjects, with specific advice on where to go next. From this point of view, we think our students are getting improved understanding of their child's progress and achievements. I will say that this system only improves communication in a school community where there is a high level of computer access amongst parents. It could just as easily remove parents further from their child's learning if it wasn't the right community and it is a risk our school needs to actively manage (ensuring some parents get sent PDFs once a term of the comments etc). We think the system is more meaningful and less onerous (what a great combination) than the previous one but it is still going through ongoing tweaks.
