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

    I always love reading about what other schools and educators are doing, especially in an area that is so quickly changing all the time.

    A few years ago we started using the e-LPF in our school to start create a 5 year plan for e-Learning in our school. The other e-Learning lead teacher and myself worked, reworked and agonised for months over it. Looking at e-Learning in our school, compared to then, how far we have come! I couldn't have dreamed up then what we are doing now. Looking back, I think I'm having one of those 'lightbulb moments'. How could we plan five years out when we had no idea what e-Learning in our school could look like in 5 years! This is that old issue of preparing for a future we can't actually be sure of. We talk about it in educating our kids; we're preparing them for professions that haven't been invented yet and educating them for a world we can only speculate about. In the same light what we might think is the right direction in e-Learning, may change as further innovations come about.

    That said the different dimensions of the e-LPF were a great start for us in termds of figuring out where we were at and about where we wanted to head in each of those areas. I think the key thing I would tell others is that it's really hard to plan too far ahead with e-Learning as new ideas/ initiatives/ tools are coming thick and fast. We can plan for the outcomes we want e.g. stronger digital citizenship, increased teacher capabilities etc and why we want these things so we can have goals, but I question the benefit of having too much directive.

    I'm sure others will disagree and I'd love to hear others ideas about how to forward plan in such an ever-changing area of education.
