21st Century Learning
Pedagogy is the function or work of a teacher. It is the art or science of teaching leading to actions that promote student learning.
e-Learning and Pedagogy
e-Learning is learning and teaching that is facilitated by or supported through the appropriate use of information and communication technologies (ICTs). Best practice e-Learning enables accessible, relevant and high-quality learning opportunities that improve student engagement and achievement.
Knowing what we are Doing
The College recognises the importance of the need for timely and effective professional development to up skill staff to take advantage of 21st century e-Learning tools in the classroom.
We are using the following rubric to determine staff needs and to guide our progression toward complete integration throughout the school.
We are using a range of cloud-based tools and digital objects to support 21st century learning in the classroom. These tools enhance collaboration, communication, creativity and innovation and critical thinking and problem solving. They also provide opportunity for presentation and reflection and feedback.
Central to our approach is our Learning Management System (RangiNet) and the implementation of Google Apps for Education across the school.
