  • Are we just running the gauntlet? In this short read, Jill Bevan-Brown shines a light on those things we might not be aware of, or feel we can’t change - yet need to challenge, to ensure (gifted) Māori students are thriving in mainstream environments. The examples shared are troublesome and confronting.

  • LEARNING TO THRIVE IN A TRANSFORMING WORLD: Derek Wenmoth invites us to explore the following concepts deeper, by reflecting on the rich questions posed in his blog in relation to a) Focus on building capabilities, B) Learning as a disposition, and C) Learning involves everyone. What speaks to you the most for the beginning of 2018?
  • How are you using Seesaw in your school? Many teachers are asking about how schools/teachers are implementing Seesaw into their programmes.
