About me

Kia ora

My name’s Ginette Van Praag and I've joined the VLN Primary Team this year, working as their eLearning Support Facilitator and National Co-ordinator


I have been a teacher of ICT and Digital Technologies for almost fifteen years and I am passionate about using digital technologies to transform teaching and learning experiences in the classroom.  I have a special interest in teaching young people programming and computer science and run a VLNP Scratch programming class every Friday.

I am originally from the UK and came here when my two sons were small.  One son started university this year studying Law and Business, the other is half-way through Year 13. Both are excellent sportsmen.  I am an avid kitchen gardener and maintain a third of an acre section in rural Whangarei, where we also enjoy the company of two dogs and a cat.

    Kia ora Ginette and welcome to the VLN and Enabling e-Learning.

    I am part of the online team and we are here to support you and help you get the most out of the VLN community.

    I see you have joined our Enabling e-Learning Technologies group, maybe I could suggest some other groups to help you get the most out of the VLN.

    You might like to join the "Getting started on the VLN" group, here you will find a wealth of tips (profile image/detail) to help you get the most out of the VLN.

    You might also like to join the other sub-groups in Enabling e-Learning too/groups/profile/118255/enabling-elearning/ for more on-going conversations.

    Each fortnight we put together the e-learning round-up on the blog, it is well worth skimming through to see the latest discussions and links, [/blog/group/118255/all].

    If you want to know more about VLN/Enabling e-Learning community groups, you can view this webinar recording >>> http://

    Looking forward to working with you online.

    Ngā mihi nui, nā Tessa.
