e-Learning Planning Framework revised


The e-Learning Planning Framework provides schools and teachers with a self-review tool to gather evidence about practice and a "road map" for building e-learning capability.

The framework has been revised in January 2014. The key changes are:

  • re-ordering the order of dimensions to raise focus on the importance of engagement with whānau and community
  • inclusion of whānau and student engagement in several strands so that schools can involve the wider community in self-review, should they choose to do so
  • "Pre-emerging" added as a phase throughout the frameworks
  • a new strand added in the Teaching dimension, "Digital literacy embedded in the curriculum".

Visit the e-Learning Planning Framework section to download the revised e-Learning Planning Framework (eLPF).
