Who are – Expanding Learning Horizons (ELH)?
Expanding Learning Horizons (ELH) is the leading independent advisor run by teachers, for schools looking to integrate technology into their learning strategies and provide technology related professional learning programs for teachers.
The Expanding Learning Horizons organisation was created by Computelec to be an independent advisor for schools on the creation and implementation of technology programs, providing strategic planning and consultancy services and a deliver carefully planned technology related professional learning for teachers. With a wealth of experience in 1-to-1 technology programs around the country, Expanding Learning Horizons can work with any school at any stage of ICT planning or deployment and can effect sustainable change enhancing the use of technology with students.
As the only organisation in Australia that focuses on a fully integrated approach and long-term, ongoing support for schools, ELH customise professional development programs and implement ICT services to schools wanting to harness the power of technology.
Unique in that we focus on the learning vision or strategy in the first instance, we have an overall vision for ICT use in the school. Professional learning programs are then developed to fit in with the school’s broader learning goals, and rolled out in a manner of minimal disruption for the school.
The act of just using technology won’t equip students with the skills they need for the 21st Century. Innovative teaching practices using embedded technological learning activities, supports students to develop skills that will help them thrive in their future life and work. ELH work in partnership with schools to ensure students receive the experiences and opportunities within the classroom, which they need for life beyond the classroom.
Working with Expanding Learning Horizons
Every school takes a different approach to ICT strategy, so ELH tailor their services to meet individual school’s needs. There are different levels at which schools can engage the Expanding Learning Horizons team. A member of the team will be able to talk you through the options available and take you through the research phase and implementation phase. The research phase includes discussing the possible models, learning and teaching outcomes and timelines. We then move on to the implementation phase, which includes planning, community buy in, identifying curriculum changes, resources and outlines the costs associated with the project.
