Sector representation?

Jump to: navigation, search

Hi Jo,

That's a very good point and observation. Thanks for that.

Perhaps we need a "Portal block" or sub-portal page for the different sectors. In your professional opinion, what is the optimal or typical division, for example?

  • Junior Primary
  • Senior Primary and Intermediate
  • Junior Secondary
  • Senior Secondary

All advice is well received, and we'll get this implemented.

That could cause some debate I'm guessing.

Perhaps something like:

Y0-6 (or Y0-3/4-6)

Y7-10 (incorporating Senior Primary/Intermediate/Junior Secondary)

Y 11-13/14 (I see some schools are going to Y14)

That's the kind of Primary/Junior High/Secondary age groups.

Hi Jo,

Thanks for the feedback -- don't want to initiate unnecessary debate -- which is why we're asking the professionals.

I've also posted an open question to the OERNZ and MLE lists.

Thanks for raising the point -- excellent contribution.

Cheers Wayne

Yes I think some sort of categorization by level is useful for searchability -but the structure needs to be as open as possible -being able to find a resource at a different level and edit it to suit is part of what OER is about. The dividing lines between levels need to be a bit fuzzy. Is it possible to develop some sort of lo-to-hi continuum on which resources can be placed by the originator, rather than sectorizing things up?
