    Hi Ra! Thank your for joining the Connected Rotorua Teachers group. Please feel free to use resources, share your questions and experiences in discussions. Cheers Annemarie and Marnel :-)

  • Annemarie Hyde

    Great talking to you this afternoon!

  • Tessa Gray

    Kia ora again Ra, thank you for joining the Central North | Leading Effective e-Learning group. It is envisioned that these groups will become a central hub for a community of like-minded educators - focused on growing e-learning leadership, to impact change for our priority learners.

    Thank you also for introducing yourself in this thread [/discussion/view/827581]. This is a great way to establish and connect a community online, so looking forward to chatting some more. Ngā mihi nui, Tess :-)

  • Tessa Gray

    Kia ora again Ra, how were those responses in http://bit.ly/18t1hUD? Love to hear more about how you get on with your blended programme? What's worked, hasn't worked etc. Smiles,

  • Tessa Gray

    Kia ora Ra and welcome to Enabling e-Learning, good to hear from you in the thread @ http://bit.ly/18t1hUD.

    In terms of ideas for blended learning or 'flipping the classroom', can you help us paint a picture for your scenario? EG:

    • Is the curriculum level, y7/8, technology? Do you have some particular learning goals in mind?

    • Would the students be engaging individually, in peers or groups?

    • Do your students have technical capacity as well as adequate access to Internet outside the classroom?

    • Did you have some learning processes in mind?

    We'd love to hear more, so others can dive into the thread and help too http://bit.ly/18t1hUD

    I thought I'd type the same as above into that thread too, but didn't want you to feel like you've been put on the spot, so just whatever makes you feel comfortable.

    Kia ora and big smiles, Tess :-)

    Kia ora Ra and welcome to the VLN.

    I see you have not yet joined any groups, maybe I could suggest some for you?

    If e learning is your passion, you might like to join this group too. /groups/profile/118255/enabling-elearning/

    Each week we compile the weekly e-learning round-up on the blog, with snippets of what's happening - you can read it here.[/blog/group/118255/all].
