    Ethos Consultancy NZ

    Welcome

    We believe that by helping students and teachers 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, Web 2. 0 (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 Web 2.0's rich resources (see this glossary) to create opportunities for transformative learning experiences, give learners of diverse needs, ethnicities and cultural backgrounds a voice, enable students with various life commitments to study, and find new ways of connecting learners with content and each other, empower learners to create their own content and enable them to reach their desired learning goals. It can also empower education practitioners to engage with students more, moving away from the front of the room to a shared space where they too become learners.


    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.

    The models underpinning Ethos Consultancy's work are:

    Posted by John S. Oliver on April 18, 2014 at 10:37 1 Comment

    All the projects will never be completed.

    Even as one is done more spring up.

    So the grand challenge of life is to just accept that there will always be more to do than time to do it.



    Meanwhile I organize and prioritize the projects and tasks within each project.

    Then I apply relaxed discipline to keep doing the most important ones one day at a time.

    Plus I take great care to weave into the week…

    What a week… and oh, it is only Wednesday! 
    This is the week, I am taking back control of my life.  It is amazing how transformational it is to just write that down and say it out loud!
    For the last few weeks I have been feeling increasingly snowed under, and pressurized in the feeling of playing…

    Update 17 April 2014 - Digital Literacy

    Posted by Anne Kenneally on April 16, 2014 at 21:06 0 Comments

    Kia ora tātou,

    With only a couple of days to the end of term, it is timely to reflect on all that you have celebrated and been challenged by in term one.  As you take a very well earned break take time to reflect on and celebrate the successes.  As you identify challenges take time to acknowledge these and record them to allow you to make the most of opportunities to network and collaborate with others who are working through similar challenges.  …
