What is Blended E-Learning? With the government’s focus in re-designing the Professional Learning Development (PLD) programme for our schools, there has been a re-shaping in how this support will be addressed.
From a Blended e-Learning perspective, one of the main tools being offered for schools to consider, is the e-Learning Planning Framework. There will most likely be a need to scrutinise this further and unpack with schools how the framework can be utilised to enhance their current practice in e-Learning.
The target groups of Māori, Pasifika and Special Education needs students, are to be kept to the forefront and whatever PLD is offered to schools, the outcomes must be seen in raising student achievement.
This session will look at the following
- Illustrate what Blended e-Learning (BeL) looks like in schools with students, leaders, teachers, communities
- Demonstrate what the e-Learning Planning Framework is and how it relates to programmes/initiatives in schools
- Explain what the BeL project is: who is involved; organization
- Explore strengths, areas to be strengthened, opportunities and areas to be aware of in order to be explicit about the way we work; could/should work; and identify opportunities for collaboration and sharing within BeL and across the Te Toi Tupu consortium, as the lead providers of E-learning Professional Development across New Zealand.
