    Va‘atele: Creating reciprocal partnerships and digital translanguaging opportunities with Pasifika learners and their whānau
    2 October
    Public discussion Created by CORE Education

    Meet Dr Rae Si'ilata, Lecturer, University of Auckland 

    In her Spotlight session, Rae will be talking about digital translanguaging, and what schools need to do to enable genuine two-way knowledge sharing and the development of reciprocal partnerships between teachers, learners and whānau. She will share voices from the Pasifika Early Literacy Project, and examples of digital translanguaging processes and products that have been developed by teachers, Pasifika children and their whānau.

    Has the phrase digital translanguaging peeked your interest? Want to know more? Why not start chatting with Dr Rae prior, during or even after uLearn in this discussion below. Simply join edSpace first, and the uLearn discussion group to post in this thread.
