NZ MoE 2011 - Examining the Virtual Learning Network: Some Observations

  1. 1. Examining the Virtual Learning Network: Some Observations Michael K. Barbour Assistant Professor Wayne State University
  2. 2. Research PurposeThe purpose of this research is to capture, in a range of ways, information that will contribute to the knowledge base about the development of virtual schooling in New Zealand, in particular,how the Learning Communities Online Handbook is being used to assist and inform this development. The focus of the project will be to: provide understandings of how schools involved are collaborating, and the impact and contribution of the LCO handbook to their development and success; to capture a series of case studies tohelp illustrate aspects of the LCO handbook guidelines, and to provide examples of effective practice. provide understandings of how schools involved are collaborating, and the impact and contribution of the LCO handbook to their development and success; to capture a series of case studies tohelp illustrate aspects of the LCO handbook guidelines, and to provide examples of effective practice.
  3. 3. Common Obstacles• Funding and resources• Lack of vision• Lack of consistency between clusters• Lack of co-operation - inter-cluster - intra-cluster
  4. 4. Individual Success Stories• Changing teacher practice• Opening classrooms• Mentor teacher• Student learning space
