The purpose of the e-Learning Planning Framework is to provide a shared language for schools as they look across their school to review the way they integrate technologies into their curriculum.

An effective school e-learning review might ask the following questions:

Planning

  • How are we collaborating with the whole school, our community, whānau and iwi?
  • What do we need to know, specifically, about the way we using e-learning?
  • What different types of data can we collect to help inform our review, including student achievement data?
  • What do we know about the progress of our Māori and Pasifika learners, and those students with identified special education needs?
  • When we look at the information, have we considered all the factors that might explain why students are doing well or why we have the issues we do?
  • So, what's most important for us to focus on? What will benefit our learners?

Actioning

  • Have we designed an action plan that specifically addresses the issues we have identified?
  • Will our action plan support collaborative, culturally responsive professional learning and inquiry?

Monitoring and reviewing

  • How will we monitor our actions and review their progress and impact as we go?
  • Do we need to adjust our actions?
  • What was the impact of our actions on leaders? teachers? students? whānau and iwi?
