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.
  • Korero from Previous Years

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

    Thanks Stu.  I am currently in the process of applying for a principal role and like you see the value of the e-planning framework tool.  What I like about this tool is that the framework is that acknowledges schools are on a journey with developing ICT skills dispositions etc.  It provides a way of talking about where we are and invites development by clearly outlining practical next steps.  I don't know where the school I am applying for is at and if I don't get this one where the next one will be but it is comforting to know someone else has put in some robust thinking and creating a document that can guide from all/any starting point. 

    P.S. All the best for your new job :)

    Hi Cherrie

     It is interesting to hear about your schools  MLE.  I will also be interested in the progress made in the school with the MLE as I am interested to hear if and how a comeback can be made for a project that clearly got off to a very poor start.  

    Wishing you all the best

    Hi Ariana,

     I'd be really interested in knowing what small steps you found effective.

    Cheers Kaye

    This is interesting to hear the idea "you cannot plan too far ahead" and the difficulties in maintaining momentum in a change.  Difficulties in embedding change are common to all changes - which is I guess why this VLN topic acknowledging this is about sustainable e-learning.

    Seeing the investment you have made into staff is difficult especially if this investment is seen as a one off investment which perhaps there is not finance to repeat.  However with all things that are core to a school essence, investment must be ongoing and part of the initiation process into the school.  As a teacher who has taught in many different schools I know that investment made in me in each of these schools has given me greater skills to encourage other staff, deliver effective teaching and learning programmes at the next school. Like other teachers I arrived at each school invested in and was added to by each.  In this way a school can invest in the teaching profession generally and education in NZ as a whole.  I think this is an exciting prospect.
