FarNet and the wider Virtual Learning Network Community (VLNC), including HarbourNet, Volcanics, WeLCom, NetNZ and VLN Primary have entered into an agreement with the Ministry of Education to provide access to support, for all secondary and primary schools, during the Covid-19 pandemic, particularly while schools are using the online space to connect with their learners and colleagues. Information around the VLNC support package has been sent from the Ministry of Education to all school principals.
The support offered from the VLNC is in the form of professional learning and development (PLD) workshops, targeted PLD based on school need, and access to online courses where necessary.
PLD will be facilitated by a range of experts from within the VLNC, and open to all schools to register and take part. Workshops around online teaching and learning pedagogy will be scheduled throughout the term. Schools will also be able to register for more targeted PLD based on their needs around online learning provision, connecting with learners, and supporting teachers working in the online space.
