  • E-learning and pedagogy -NZCInformation and communication technology (ICT) has a major impact on the world in which young people live. Similarly, e-learning (that is, learning supported by or facilitated by ICT) has considerable potential to support the teaching approaches outlined in the section below.

    For instance, e-learning may: assist the making of connections by enabling students to enter and explore new learning environments, overcoming barriers of distance and time

    facilitate shared learning by enabling students to join or create communities of learners that extend well beyond the classroom

    assist in the creation of supportive learning environments by offering resources that take account of individual, cultural, or developmental differences

    enhance opportunities to learn by offering students virtual experiences and tools that save them time, allowing them to take their learning further.

    Schools should explore not only how ICT can supplement traditional ways of teaching but also how it can open up new and different ways of learning.
