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.

What does business look like when driven and funded by women?

Posted by Hazel Owen on September 21, 2017 at 17:00 0 Comments

In the following erudite and compelling video, Vicki Saunders shares some of her formative experiences in business. One that stood out for me was the time when she was heading up her business, having become increasingly successful, she was advised that she could not be the CEO when the business went public, because the CEO would need to be a man. Since that time (and yes, she took the advice, one of her few regrets) Vicki has come across many other similar women, who have had the same…

Diversity management is the deliberate, unwavering pursuit, when managing employees and working with clients, to ‘make visible’ “all of the significant differences between people, including perceptions of differences ... such as our thinking styles or beliefs and values (Australian Multicultural Foundation, 2010, p. 8).
