Great post from +Andrew Penny  #uchoose  
I recently read a blog post by Wharehoka Wano and watched Alex Hotere-Barnes on EDtalks. Both of these discussions centred on Māori/Pākehā dynamics within education settings. Reading Wharehoka’s blog and listening to Alex got me thinking about an experience I had a few weeks ago when I was in Whakatāne as part of the LEARNZ Waka Voyaging virtual field trip.

A great description and some awesome resources from +Paula Eskett  #OER   #uChoose  
Have you ever found something from the Internet that could be a perfect resource (image, video, quiz, etc.,) for your class worksheet, website, or research and then spent hours trying to figure out the copyright issues with that resource? You couldn’t find any Terms of Use, and there was no author information, so you didn’t know whom to contact to get the permission? Wouldn’t it have been nice if that resource somehow said, “I’m free to use, no ...

Story
Introduction

I am an Education and eLearning Consultant with, and Director of, Ethos Consultancy NZ.

I have a keen interest in all aspects of ICT enhanced learning and teaching where the focus lies on ways of scaffolding and empowering learners. In particular, I am interested in the way that creative, blended approaches to Professional Learning and Development can create trust, rapport and encourage reflective practice. As such, learning is approached from facilitation, design, evaluation and assessment as opposed to the tools and what they can offer.

I am a strong advocate of the potential of Web 2.0 to empower learners from all walks of life and cultures, especially after my experiences working for 6 years in the Middle East. In particular, I am interested how ePortfolios can be used in the Vocational Education and Traning sector (especially where Literacy and Language challenges are faced), in Recognition of Prior Learning, and in authentic, applied assessment.

I have been involved with designing and developing learning approaches and programmes for twelve years. Following research informed approaches and design, I apply a qualitative, iterative process to evaluate the effectiveness of interventions, programmes and tools, encouraging learners' voices and input from all stakeholders.
