    Ethos Consultancy NZ

    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.

    Posted by Hazel Owen on April 27, 2016 at 21:00 0 Comments

    Always an issue under discussion, privacy online and how concerned you need to be, is the focus of many a CIO, IT coordinator, teacher, and parent. No matter who you are, of what your views on sharing are, it is wise to keep up to speed with thinking about privacy especially if you are a regular user of social media.

    From dreamers to critics: Making sure everyone has a voice

    Posted by Hazel Owen on April 26, 2016 at 15:37 0 Comments

    I sometimes work with coachees who will come up with a strategy, and then immediately add the tag “that won’t work because…”. This focus tends to result in some great ideas and strategies never getting off the ground as a result. 

    The Disney Strategy was developed by the Neuro Linguistic Programme (NLP) practitioner, Robert Dilts. Dilts based the strategy on the approach Walt Disney…

    What Remains?

    Posted by John S. Oliver on April 25, 2016 at 0:30 2 Comments

    I read books and websites.

    I have been doing this for decades.

    I desire to learn and understand.

    I do my best to pay attention.

    Yet most of what I have read is forgotten soon after that.

    I must have retained some.

    When I read a book again that I marked up I recall parts.

    But most is fuzzy or gone from my memory.

     

    How can this inform me as a writer?

    I spend much time editing while making many revisions.

    That seemed…
