Go to LEARNZ on the VLNThe Virtual Learning Network (VLN) is an online support area for all New Zealand educators, provided by the Ministry of Education.

Much of the VLN is open-access so you can view it without the need to create an account or log in.

However, to contribute you must log in (and have created an account).

There is a dedicated LEARNZ Group on the VLN that you can join, where you can:

  • share examples of class learning
  • view questions from other teachers about LEARNZ
  • view answers¬†
  • post questions and answers.

For every LEARNZ field trip there is a separate discussion topic in the LEARNZ Group on the VLN.

The following are some ideas for your posts:

  • Post a photo of your class learning for this field trip
  • Post a lesson plan or activity that you have created or adapted for this field trip
  • Suggest a video for a particular field trip that you would like the LEARNZ team to shoot and edit for your class during the field trip.
  • Suggest how teachers could integrate a LEARNZ field trip into their reading or literacy programme.
  • Ask for links to other support material related to a particular LEARNZ field trip.
  • Ask for suggestions from other teachers and educators about integrating a particular LEARNZ field trip into your teaching and learning programme
  • Respond to a query from another teacher.
