This section contains the e-Learning Planning Framework (eLPF) along with supporting information and resources. These resources are designed to support you, and your school, in assessing and developing your e-capability.
The e-Learning Planning Framework (eLPF) and Māori-medium eLPF are tools to help schools and teachers reflect on, and evaluate, their e-learning capability. The eLPF is intended to support regular self-review and subsequent improvement of e-learning skills and knowledge, in ways that reflect our bicultural heritage within a multicultural context.
The dimensions within the eLPF/MMeLPF are derived from a synthesis of international research and from a range of e-capability frameworks; while the phases draw on professional learning frameworks such as the Concerns-Based Adoption Model (CBAM ).
All the dimensions of the eLPF/MMeLPF need to be "in play" if a school is to sustain its e-capability development over time, and in ways that reflect effective practice for educators and outcomes for learners.
The framework provides schools and teachers with:
Karen Melhuish, from the Te Toi Tupu consortium, explains the e-Learning Planning Framework (eLPF). She describes its purpose and how it is supported by content on the Enabling e-Learning website.
In this EDtalk, Karen Melhuish: e-Learning Planning Framework , Karen explains the elements of the framework and how it can be used. She outlines the supporting materials, examples, and resources for principals and school leaders, examples and resources for teachers, and a possible approach for using the framework.
A series of phases in the e-Learning Planning Framework , from Emerging through to Empowering, describe how technology is adopted and integrated into teaching and learning within each dimension of the framework.
Assuming you are the person (principal or e-leader) who is instigating the school’s use of the tool. Consider:

This video outlines why you might conduct a review. It could be used with staff, in parent meetings, or to inform any users of the eLPF in printed or electronic versions.
The eLPF is accessible both as an online tool and as a hardcopy. Decide which is the best tool for your school.
You might choose the online tool because:

Each strand within the five dimensions of the e-Learning Planning Framework is supported by a page of examples and resources for principals, school leaders, and teachers.
In this dimension, you review how The New Zealand Curriculum is enabled by digital technologies, in ways that reflect our bi-cultural heritage. This includes e-learning within the whole school curriculum, digital literacies, learning areas, pedagogy, and assessment.
In this dimension, you review how you engage with your community - and wider networks - with and about digital technologies.
In this dimension, you review the way technical support and digital technologies are managed and purchased.
In this dimension, you review the way e-learning is integrated into school vision, the leadership of e-learning and how e-learning integrated into strategic
direction and policy.
The Enabling e-Learning Community in the Virtual Learning Network (VLN) is a place to ask questions and discuss how you are using the e-Learning Planning Framework.
