About me

Hi everyone

I am currently working as an ESOL teacher at two Wellington Schools as well as on ACCELL online. I have been teaching ESOL for nine years.  I have a graduate diploma in TESOL and am currently working towards an MA in applied linguistics.  I live in Tawa, North Wellington and have three children.

    Kia ora Ruthanne and welcome to the Blended e-learning Literacy group.

    This is a group to support the e-Learning aspect of raising student achievement in literacy.

    Please do use the Group discussion navigation tab to join in and/or initiate discussion about the use of e-Learning to support literacy. Share your favourite tools or readings through the Group bookmarks or expand on this in the Group blog.

    Remember, the best way to learn something is to teach it, so be active in this space and contribute your ideas to enrich the practice of all.

    Looking forward to working with you online.

    Ngā mihi nui, nā Anne

    Kia ora Ruthanne 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 joined a group already, maybe I could suggest some other 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 (profile image/detail) to help you get the most out of the VLN.

    If you're interested in e-learning, you might like to join this group too. http://www.vln.school.nz/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, [http://www.vln.school.nz/blog/group/118255/all].
