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've been invisible for a long time.   Sorry about that.  And I did just return to the US after a 5-week visit with grandkids in Dunedain.  But there was a hurricane and emergency surgery and all, but I'm better.   Just did a catch-up post on my US Blog.

How can we get parents to engage with Internet Safety?

Posted by Neve Spicer on May 4, 2018 at 6:00 2 Comments

Hi Ethos Community,

This is my first post and I'd like to thank Hazel for encouraging me to come aboard.

I'm the director of WeTheParents, an online parenting resource that has recently done a huge piece of work on Internet Safety.

Now, there are many online resources for Internet Safety, but here's the thing: most are old and dull!! (Yup, I've said it.)

Schools often link to one or two of these. But then, to make matters worse, even these resources aren't being…

Can I build resilience in my students?

Posted by Lorraine Vickery on April 29, 2018 at 13:30 1 Comment

Having got to know the special education needs of the students I work with I discovered that they do not cope with getting their work incorrect or wrong. I have observed examples of students finding ways to cheat, waiting for you to give them the correct answer, or they give up or they act out when they are unable to complete a task and some do not show any resilience to what they see as “failure.” 

This is common…
