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.

You’re going to want to print out this infographic and, at the very least, share it with your fellow teachers and even students.
