Online Facilitator – National Blended e-Learning PLD Programme. I currently work for CORE Education in the Te Toi Tupu consortium for the National Blended e-Learning Programme as the online facilitator for 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 social network - which includes brokering relationships within and beyond the VLN. I will also be able to support members to share material and discuss effective strategies for teaching and learning - with an e-learning lens.
My educational background spans 24 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 consortium. I look forward to connecting with you in some way.
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.
Completed by 600 schools across the sector, the survey shows that existing school infrastructure is in a relatively good state. More than half of schools surveyed have a server less than five years old and most schools have some type of wireless system. Indications are that while most schools are embracing digital learning they are keen to upgrade their internal networks through the School Network Upgrade Project to ensure service quality is retained as technology demands increase.
The School ICT Infrastructure Survey is available as a download from Education Counts. Published in April 2013 and written by the Schools Infrastructure Group, Ultra-fast Broadband in Schools, and Ministry of Education, it provides information about the current state of ICT infrastructure in New Zealand schools, how they are currently using technology and what they would find valuable in terms of content and services to enhance teaching and learning.
The Ministry’s Ultra-fast Broadband in Schools team is currently visiting regions around New Zealand to inform local schools of the progress on digital education initiatives including:
The updates are being given as part of CORE Education’s Learning@schools roadshow. If you missed it, you can find the presentation on the Ultra-fast Broadband in Schools page under the heading, Update on current initiatives.
