Enabling e-Learning online facilitator. I currently work for CORE Education in the Te Toi Tupu consortium as the online facilitator for the Ministry of Education's Enabling e-Learning.
A big part of my role, is to help build a sense of community identity in the VLN community groups space. I'm here to help support partnerships within our professional network - which includes brokering relationships within and beyond the VLN.
I'm also here to support community members mentor others online, as we share opinions, ideas, resource and teacher reflections - that will enhance learning opportunities for all our learners. A priority focus will concentrate on conversations and live events that focus on the effective role of e-learning in education. This will happen largely within the Enabling e-Learning community groups. Come join me there!
My educational background spans 26 years - both here and in London. It includes generalist classroom teaching, art specialist, art adviser, ICT adviser, ICT PD national facilitator and now online facilitator for the Te Toi Tupu Leading Learning consortium and the Ministry of Education.
At home, I am the third child of four. I have a fabulous partner, cheeky son and two gorgeous step-children. Life is pretty good in the sunny BOP. I'm proud to be a published author of five books on art and ICT.
Please feel free to drop me a line or leave me a message at any time. I'd love to hear from you
We have been busy over the summer break developing new content for the Enabling e-Learning website and planning a new series of free webinars and discussions in our online community.
