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

    Frances Valintine, founder of the MindLab, writes about the next generation as the digital natives.  - these 12 year olds that are about to hit our secondary schools and they are experienced digital learners who are practiced at inquiry learning techniques and they have possibly never experienced a traditional classroom.   

    As Frances says " These are active learners familiar with inquiry-based practice, who have learnt to pivot seamlessly between devices and across different platforms while they deep dive into subject areas that are delivered online, offline and in immersive learning environments.  This generation of the disruptive learner who will bring their experience of collaboration, openness and digital literacy to the classroom. They are redefining, modifying and augmenting the learning process and bringing a technical confidence to the classroom"

    substitution - redefining - modifying - augmentation  = SAMR model for integrating ICT into our teaching and learning practices


    Valintine questions are we ready at high school to best support the learning needs of these 12 year olds, have we adapted/developed or ICT practices enough to provide authentic learning for this wave of digital natives that corresponds with the world they live in.

    Valintine believes It is time for new modalities, where co-constructed knowledge is scaffolded and powered by digital pedagogies. Let us be part of the solution as we build a new education system that supports the development of creators, doers, innovators, coders and problem-solvers.

    For me as an educator it is about being open to new digital learning practices, never being afraid to ask questiosn, Ako between student and teacher.
