Home School Partnership

We will also be looking at resources for enhancing the home school partnership. There are some really solid ideas on the VLN discussion around ways to foster home/school partnerships.

As part of this we will be using a quick survey to help schools evaluate their current eLearning capacity and goals so we can better align our cluster support for you in 2012.

We would like to extend the hand of collaboration to the principals of the Whakatu Cluster as well as they may like to gain an understanding of our progress thus far and strategic planning for the year ahead with a view to joining the regional cluster next in 2012 should they wish too.
Sharing- come along prepared to give a short presentation to the group about a successful way you have engaged students or raised achievement using ICT since our last meeting.

Or be prepared to engage the group in conversation around a challenge you have had that you would like discussion about.

Here is the Google Doc with the links to what we shared in the after noon
