This kete contains a range of proven tools, case studies and commentaries. It focuses on the collection and use of data to inform critical discussions and actions for improvement.
Kia ora. In this section of the site, you can find practical information and resources to support Māori learners. All the resources are available from the Ministry of Education and New Zealand education sector sites.
We have organised the content collections using a “layers of influence” approach. These “layers of influence” shape the conditions in which Māori learn and can have an impact on learners enjoying and achieving educational success as Māori. The layers are: the Crown, iwi, whānau, school leaders, teachers and students.
School leaders make a significant difference to the achievement of outcomes that both schools and their communities value.
Leaders include boards of trustees, principals, senior leadership teams, and middle leaders in the school, as well as “visiting” leaders like professional learning and development facilitators. They are all leaders of effective teaching and learning.
Leaders need to support their teachers to understand how to engage and unlock the diverse experiences of students in ways that recognise their integrity and mana, and how to utilise the cultural strengths of their learners as part of their processing new learning.
This kete contains resources to help challenge school leaders to think differently about achieving educational success as Māori
This kete contains some of the key strategies that Te Kotahitanga used for open and frank discussions with teachers. The goal of these discussions was to develop the knowledge required to change belief systems.
