Karen Melhuish Spencer: Making the most of online learning

25 June 2012

Wellington’s breakfast seminar on Friday morning (22 June) attracted over 70 people and was presented by CORE Education e-learning consultant Karen Melhuish Spencer.

Karen focused on the ways in which schools can make the most of technology to support their staff’s professional learning, and discussed whether schools should consider using technology to create opportunities and a shared professional story around their learning practice.

During the presentation, she explored the global trends in which professional learning and technology come together. Examples of this include the growth in personalized learning environments, as well as the opportunities offered by social media. Karen finished by sharing a five-step process to support the effective use of technology as part of a professional inquiry process.

A follow on three hour workshop unpacked this Workshop further.

Karen will present this seminar in Christchurch in August, and in Dunedin, Invercargill and Cromwell later in the year.
