Te Akatea "Disruption Day" 2018 - Whangarei

Keynote: “We know we are not less intelligent than Pākehā, so how come they don’t know how to teach us?”

Registration link here

How do we answer this question asked by a Māori learner, whose analysis of COL achievement challenges found that 99% targeted Māori boys’ writing? Recent research has exposed “unsolicited” and “surprising” comments from children about the racism they experience as learners, and the Ministry of Education is advocating that a “bold step” is required to tackle teachers’ “unconscious bias” against Māori children. With a 73% Pākehā, 73% female, teaching workforce, the gap between our knowledge and the lives of the children we need to make the biggest changes for, is the crucial space that our professional development needs to target. How do we change this?

The Global Learning Lab "Blended Learning" Roundtable

Invited to contribute and act as a "provocateur" at this international Roundtable learning experience.

The aim of the Roundtable is to better understand how to grow ourselves, our teachers, our alumni, and our organizations as agents of systemic change rather than as enablers of inequitable systems. Bringing together a diverse mix of experts, partner organization representatives, educators, and students, this Roundtable will explore the intersection of contextualized vision, dynamics of power and privilege, systems thinking, collective leadership, and learning theory—all to accelerate our learning about attaining and maintaining “orientation to vision” in our work for education equity.
