CONFERENCE THEME: Māui Taumata Rau

Education in Aotearoa is undergoing a much needed paradigm shift. Research is playing a key role in facilitating that shift. By highlighting the flexibility, versatility, speed and agility with which creative minds, spirits, and bodies living and playing in today’s education setting are able to co-construct our tomorrows, our shared visions, hopes and dreams. That is the stuff of transformation. Just like our ancestor Māui who was able to create land, transform ways of being, slow down the sun, and even bravely challenge the cycles of life and death, we too have to continue to be brave, risky and revolutionary in order to collaboratively shape and reshape thinking, futures, and the ‘good’ life of all members of our societies.

Waikato-Tainui Kawenata Schools' Hui

Keynote Speaker
THEME:  Mahia te mahi  (Just do it!) 

Today, Te Puea Herangi's words "Mahia te mahi" would roughly translate into "Just do it!"  And in the spirit of this koorero, the theme for the upcoming Kawenata hui is based on activation.  We are keen to see our Kawenata partnership shift up a gear, with a deliberate focus on key actions that collectively will make the most difference for Waikato-Tainui learners, and all learners, in your school.

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?
