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.

Teaching IS Inquiry

Posted by Madeline Campbell on March 27, 2018 at 22:00 2 Comments

At some point in the last three years, I stopped being a teacher who accessed professional learning from time to time and rarely due to my somewhat remote setting, and became a teacher who's teaching spaces became sites of continuous professional learning and inquiry. 'Teaching' and 'learning about teaching' blurred, then all teaching became inquiry...…

Amazed at those people with little food yet much human energy required in special circumstances

Men at sea during long voyages on sailing ships that ate hard biscuits that they brought when they began.

Chinese who built the transcontinental railroad eating mostly rice.

Soldiers throughout history who after long marches and battles they yet fought again without much good food or rest. Note that combat before guns was VERY physical.

Those who fight forest fires on the ground for a very long time near the blazes without much rest, water, or…
