About me

I am an experienced (older!) teacher living in, and loving Hawkes Bay.  I am married with three adult sons who all seem to boomerang back home at various times!! I enjoy using IT but I am not that confident and have a lot to learn. I want to use the IT available to me and the kids as best as possible.

    Tēnā koe Jill,

    Welcome to the iPad group on the VLN.

    Kia ora Jill and welcome to the VLN.

    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've yet to join some groups, maybe I could suggest some 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.


    If e-learning is your passion, you might like to join 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.

    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.
