Community guidelines 2

Nau mai, haere mai, talofa lava, malo e lelei, kia ora and welcome to edSpace, CORE’s community of practice. We’re so glad you’ve made it here. For more on this community, see About us.

We want you to make this community your own, to share your thoughts, experience, ideas and concerns with CORE and the rest of our community. Before you do, please keep these simple guidelines in mind:

  • Complete your profile and tell others about yourself. This helps to connect each other with common interests.

  • Model professional communication and mutual respect for others. Choose your words wisely. Tone online is very important and can easily be misunderstood if written in a terse way. Any comments that use obscenities or degrade any person, race, religion, gender, age, or abilities will not be accepted. Ask yourself, how do I want people to view me online?

  • Honour democracy as differences of opinion. In this community, we’re all equals when and as we share our thoughts and opinions.

  • Acknowledge language, culture and identity when/where appropriate and honor the articles of the Treaty of Waitangi.

  • Source and use appropriate citations for resources. See Terms and Conditions for copyright statements

  • Keep your comments focused and on topic, according to each post. This helps to create productive conversations. If you have bigger or alternative ideas you wish to discuss, feel free to contact the group owner or community facilitator, Tessa Gray.

  • Protect your privacy. Comments on the blog are visible to the general public. You shouldn’t post anything here that you wouldn’t say in public. Protect your privacy and the privacy of others - avoid giving our personal information such as email addresses, telephone numbers or street addresses unless you want this shared as part of your profile.

  • Be aware of Terms and Conditions for commercial practices, such as appropriate use and citation of content, material and resources.

  • Enjoy learning from others. The online relationships we form here are grounded in information exchange and knowledge creation and we encourage you to share freely.

Please note: To add comments or start discussion threads, you will need to join the groups you can see or are invited to, even if the discussions appear public.​


All comments are being moderated.  We reserve the right to make decisions regarding the submission or removal of comments. All users will be notified of decisions made in this regard.
