  1. 1. LEARNING & FACILITATING ONLINE Some ideas to consider…. Karen Melhuish Spencer @virtuallykaren
  2. 2. WHY WE/PEOPLE FIND IT CHALLENGING •Uncertain about the technology •Fear of what people will think •Cybersecurity •Privacy •Nothing worth sharing •Not an „expert‟ •What‟s missing?

  6. 6. SCENARIOS – CO-CONSTRUCTING A RESPONSE Example 1: “Kia ora ….. As a staff we have recently looked at the literacy performance of all our learners and are increasingly concerned about how our Māori and Pasifika students are performing. But, having identified the problem, we have no idea where to go next. Can anyone help or share how they have tackled the next steps? …” Example 2: “I am on an e-learning strategy team in Nelson and we are wanting to assist the school into the e-learning future. Would love to understand from why they resisted change and what helped them your colleagues who may have resisted change at first, begin to embrace the digital era? We want to present the strategy into the school in a way which all teachers will feel excited about the vision. Thanks.” Image: Some rights reserved by Holger Zscheyge Go to: http://bit.ly/S5wdTZ
