NZ Virtual Professional Learning and Development programme

"The Virtual Professional Learning Development programme (VPLD) provides professional learning through an online Community of Practice (CoP). The VPLD offers flexibility of choice, time and approach, and is designed to fit in with what you are already doing as teachers and/or leaders.

Participants develop their own learning goals around projects that interest them, within a learning inquiry process. The aims are to raise participants' professional knowledge and skills, while also accelerating students' achievement of learning outcomes.

A fundamental aspect of participating in the VPLD is engagement in the VPLD online Community of Practice (CoP). The CoP offers a safe environment in which educators can discuss and challenge alternative points of view about pedagogy and practice, across disciplines and sectors."

Pedagogical affordances of syndication, aggregation, and mash-up of content on the Web

"As Internet and online learning become more and more incorporated into our courses, syllabi, and teaching materials, it becomes increasingly important that the impact the Web is having on changing perceptions of literacy carries over to the way we practice teaching and learning. Here we will focus on which collaborative online tools can most appropriately be applied in online and blended courses to foster reading and writing. Specifically, we will discuss some of the freely available social networking platforms and tools, their common features, and how these can help language learners find, aggregate and harvest learning objects while connecting to other people on the Web at large. We will also introduce two web publishing projects, and Writingmatrix, and explain how they function to facilitate this process and encourage connections."
