Most of us are looking for ways to ignite a passion for learning, to help our kids access and engage in joyful moments in learning; so they can grow to be inquisitive learners. That dream becomes a harsh reality, when trying to meet the diverse needs of learners. Sometimes schools are isolated, resourcing can be limited (including teachers), timetables incompatible our some of our students don’t relate or respond well to traditional methods of teaching and learning.

More and more schools are integrating online learning programmes (including NetNZ and Te Kura) that utilise multiple modes of communication, are self-paced and personalised to better meet the individualised needs of their learners. Schools like Maniototo Area School have eDeans to help their students access learning inline within and between schools. See e-Learning opens paths for more.

On Thursday 30 Nov, 3.45pm, Rachel Whalley, e-principal of  VLN Primary network, is going to be talking about the potential of the internet to connect learners, where the VLN Primary School network is empowering students to learn with and from each other.

Anne Williams (eDean) Nicky Lewis (e-Learning teacher) Ashburton College and Darren Sudlow (eDirector NetNZ) will also be talking about the potential for students to make powerful connections to learning online in a secondary context, enabling students to be motivated, to learn in different ways, develop personal management skills and then freedom to work and learn flexibly, together - connecting with others in online communities. Anne and Nicky will share some stories of deeper, richer learning and how they’re supporting initiatives to help make that happen for their students.
