“e-Education – e-Education involves e-teaching and e-learning along with the various administrative and strategic resources needed to support teaching and learning in an Internet environment.It will incorporate a local, regional, national and international view of education.”
What is eLearning?
…that all learners will use ICT confidently and creatively to help develop the skills and knowledge they need to achieve personal goals and to be full participants in the global community…
The Advisory Group shares a vision where all New Zealanders will access:
Learner-centred e-Learning opportunities that maximise choice and flexibility
E-Learning of world-class quality, that draws on the best offerings, from here and overseas
E-Learning that reflects New Zealand’s unique cultures, Treaty-based responsibilities and the special strengths of its teachers and educators
A cost-effective system that benefits from the involvement of both public education providers and private enterprise
“A networked, flexible education system offering accessible, relevant, high quality learning opportunities to all New Zealanders”
New Zealand will be a world leader at using information and technology to realise our economic, social and cultural goals.
All New Zealanders will benefit from the power of information and communications technology (ICT) to harness information for economic and social gain. This will result in changes in government, businesses, communities and society as a whole.
Cause or Purpose
Cross Cultural Collaboration relationships
Built on …
..in name only…limited access
…for us by us …
…involvement with another culture, and involved at all levels of decision making…
Collaboration is the process of shared
creation: two or more individuals, [or groups
of people], with complementary skills
interacting to create a shared understanding
that none had previously possessed or could
have come to on their own.”
… is when members [or experts] of a particular cultural community collaborate with members [or experts] of different cultural community through sharing skills, knowledge, vision, responsibility and authority, based on the premise that the complementary relationship will bring about
empowerment, change, or innovation.
(Adapted from Harrison’s definition of Collaboration - pg 45)
..there is an implied imbalance in power
..outsiders need to negotiate access
.. in order to gain access, outsiders must agree that the outcome of any collaborative project should bring about empowerment, change, or innovation
..that decision making is shared at all levels of project development…
