Nau mai, haere mai - welcome

We believe that by helping learners and education practitioners keep alive their joy of learning we can contribute to the important cultural work of challenging the current status quo in results-driven education.

With its flexibility and rich wealth of resources, technology (when informed by education principles that recognise human learning as social and contextualised), can empower learners to collaborate fruitfully, using new information and ideas to build on what they already know.

In turn, education practitioners can use rich multimedia resources to create opportunities for transformative learning experiences, to give learners of diverse needs, ethnicities and cultural backgrounds a voice, to enable students with various life commitments to study, and to find new ways of enabling learners to reach their desired goals.

The aim of this site is to share effective practice, resources and ideas by encouraging discussion around the design, facilitation, assessment and evaluation of online communities and how they impact learning in all education sectors. We are also sharing resources and ideas around ePortfolios and Green ICT in Education.

Because collaboration and openness are two of our guiding principles, we choose to use this Ning as the forum for projects in which we are involved.

I designed activities to either strengthen existing individual characteristics and/or worked on building the skills that supported resilience.

During problem solving exercises especially evident during the ‘Who Dun It’ stories one student went from guessing the answers to my questions, as his default response, to  thinking about what he would say. I observed him thinking about the information he had and following…

Activities that Promote and build Resilience.

In my problem solving sessions students must combine different types of information, such as personal experiences and prior knowledge to complete tasks. One of which is the 'Who Dun it' stories where they must extract information from the text.  Literal comprehension, involving recognising and remembering facts is easy for the students compared to inferential comprehension which requires them to deduce information that is not explicitly stated in the…
