About me

I used to be a science teacher but now I'm a researcher at NZCER. I have a particular interest in both NZC and NCEA, and how we might keep the cart (NCEA) behind the horse (NZC).

I'm keen to support more teachers to take a deeper reading of the key competencies. One main driving idea is that they don't add to the curriculum - they change it. I especially enjoy working with the many creative and inspiring teachers who get this idea and bring it to life in their classrooms

    Kia ora Rose 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.

    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://bit.ly/1eQTLXD

    Looking forward to working with you online.

    Ngā mihi nui, nā Nathaniel.
