Kia Ora Michael
Welcome to 2017! We hope you are feeling recharged and ready to tackle the opportunities that this year will bring.
In this edition, we profile a research paper on Māori medium education, showcase our upcoming professional learning options on Innovative Learning Environments, and invite you to enrol for LEARNZ’s first virtual field trip for 2017.
Taking stock of Māori medium educational resources: priorities, gaps and futures?
Alex Hotere-Barnes, Te Mihinga Komene, and Wawaro Te Whaiti have recently published this bilingual summary. It aims to provide the Māori medium education sector with a snapshot of what pouako priorities and aspirations are for resource development, and what gaps need to be addressed. Read this paper in our research section (scroll down to Reports and Publications).

INNOVATIVE LEARNING ENVIRONMENTS
Professional learning solutions on this on-trend topic
Across education, there is a growing awareness of the role that the physical environment plays in supporting powerful teaching and learning. Far from being passive, the built environment exerts pressure on us to act and behave in particular ways, and when used to support or promote high-effect pedagogies and practices can make a considerable difference to student learning. At CORE we have a variety of professional learning options from free blog resources, half-day workshops, online programmes and one-day events.
- Changing Spaces – one-day event – Auckland – 29 April
- ILE breakfast series – Kohia – 17 March, 12 May, 11 August & 3 November
- Literacy and numeracy workshops – February & April in Christchurch, Wellington & Dunedin. These workshops cater for junior and middle/senior primary teachers.
- Blog section with articles on ILE
LEARNZ VIRTUAL FIELD TRIP

Some highlights will include (subject to weather):
- Sailing on a dolphin-watching catamaran, to see seals, dolphins, and maybe orca
- Working with dolphin scientists out on the ocean
