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

It will be best for all new posts to be in this thread so they are easier to follow.

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

    Tēna Koutou,

    Carla, I totally agree, our staff has had in depth PLD around literacy and numeracy etc and also in fact had PLD for ICT, the trouble is, as Scott discussed, the technology is moving at such an incredible rate, that I for one feel as though the moment I begin to get a handle on one thing the bench post has moved or something 'newer and better' is being introduced, often causing me (and I am sure others) to feel overwhelmed by it all.

    I am ICT challenged! A priority Learner, BUT, I am fortunate that I have colleagues who are ICT savvy and extremely supportive. In saying this I do believe I have something in my favour, I am aware of my shortfalls in this area and willing to try, learn, explore as I see that technology cannot be avoided and should be embraced as our current and future and students are digital natives and the scope that technology gives you as a teacher to 'reach' your students is immense.

    As well as going on the NAPP journey this year, my colleagues and I 'jumped in' and also have undertaken The Mind Lab by Unitec's postgraduate Certificate in Applied Practice (Digital and Collaborative Learning) programme. 

    So far, as well as exploring a number of apps and programmes we have also looked into leadership theories, the benefits of blended learning and flipped classrooms and collaborative practice using digital tools. For me the best part of the programme has been the close analysis and critical reflection I have done on my own practice.

    If any of you have the opportunity in your area to take part in this programme, I would highly recommend it!
