Bridging the Gap ICTPD wikispace

Welcome to the Bridging the Gap ICT PD Cluster wiki

Three Key Cluster Questions:

  • What is needed to learn how to "live well" and to learn how to "learn well"?

  • What are the conditions of value in teaching and learning that will support these learning experiences?

  • How might e-learning enhance or betray these conditions of value

Cluster Goals


1. Implement the principles of the New Zealand Curriculum/Te Marautanga o Aotearoa, through learning programmes that develop; an understanding of student learning outcomes through SOLO Taxonomy, and the effective integration of e-learning.
2. Increase teacher knowledge and expertise in raising student achievement through effective e-learning.
3. Ensure a range of regular and open communication to build learning communities within and across cluster schools.
4. Strengthen leadership in the use of e-learning to enhance effective teaching and learning. Develop strategic e-learning leadership and ICT plans for each school.
5. Communicate changes in pedagogy and use of e-learning to the school community.
