The e-Learning Planning Framework (eLPF) and the Māori medium e-Learning Planning Framework (MMelpf) or Te Rangitukutuku, are frameworks designed to help schools and teachers measure their e-learning capability. They can support regular self-review and subsequent improvement of e-learning skills and knowledge, in ways that reflect our bi-cultural heritage.
The expected outcomes:
The frameworks provide schools and teachers with:
- a self-review tool for schools to gather evidence about practice
- a 'road map' for building e-learning capability
- a tool to evaluate the effectiveness of e-learning programmes
- resources and services to support schools as they build capability.
The frameworks are available for all schools in New Zealand. The key smart tool is available within the Learning with Digital Technologies PLD programme.
Methods of delivery:
The frameworks can be used at any point in the school year, to set a baseline for planning and to review progress made.
The frameworks help schools identify the priority areas on which to focus as they grow their ability to use digital technologies for effective learning.
Relationships with parents, whānau and iwi:
The frameworks have a strong focus on connecting with and engaging whānau, iwi and wider communities with and through the use of digital technologies. It support schools to review their progress in this context.
Supporting resources for the eLPF and MMelpf are downloadable from the Enabling e-Learning website and schools can also connect with others through the community group in the VLN, Using the e-Learning Planning Frameworks.
