    Hi Helen, I'd also like to add there's three great stories of science PLD from the recent PLD providers - Te Toi Tupu.

    1. http://www.tetoitupu.org/science-primary-schools-developing-teacher-confidence-and-capability

    2. http://www.tetoitupu.org/importance-scientific-thinking

    3. http://www.tetoitupu.org/nurturing-scientifically-literate-citizens

    You might be able to talk directly with Anne Barker [/profile/habarker] about how to get some blended support in this area.

    I'd love to hear how you get on.
    Smiles,
    Tess:-)

    Kia ora Helen and welcome to the VLN.

    I am here to support you and help you get the most out of the VLN community.

    I see you have joined a group already with a real interest in science and e-learning; maybe I could suggest some more 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 to help you get the most out of the VLN. Such as finding groups and friends.

    For those 3 digital classrooms, you might like this group too. /groups/profile/118255/enabling-elearning/ There are several more e-learning sub-groups you might like to join too for on-going conversations.

    Every three weeks 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

    Looking forward to working with you online.

    Ngā mihi nui,
    Tess:-)

    Hi, I am new to VLN and am looking for some help/advice about improving science in my school. While not discouraged, science is not also not actively encouraged and my research shows two main reasons - teachers are not confident in their scientific ability and there has been no PLD in science for a number of years (if at all). We have 3 digital classrooms with more coming online. We are a small low decile school in rural Northland so money is tight but I am looking for some strategies I could use to engage the teachers and use the wider science community to help with this. Any suggestions gratefully received.
