We’re Open For Online Learning!

Another item from my Kiwi readers.

Check out our range of online webinars and programmes
Tēnā koe Michael

At the end of week one of the official lockdown, we’re all beginning to get a taste of what our lives might be like over the next while. Each of our circumstances will be different, and some of you might be turning your attention to your own professional learning and development.

We want to let you know that CORE remains “open for learning”.

Our webinars (30-60mins) and programmes (8+ weeks) cover a range of learning areas.

Spotlight on Game Based Learning

Game based learning can take ākonga on a journey, from being consumers to being digital creators. Hear how Fiona Summerfield used game based learning with her yr8 and yr11 children in this podcast.

Switching locally-focused PLD hours

The Ministry of Education is encouraging schools, kura, and Kāhui Ako to switch already contracted, locally-focused PLD hours to support for distance learning. If you have already contracted hours to work with a CORE facilitator, and you’d like to switch the focus of your PLD, please contact your facilitator directly.

CORE Blog and resources

We’ve put resources and information to support distance learning in one place on our website. The blogs ‘Learning at home: starts with relationships’ and ‘Engaging junior learners and whānau from home‘ are a great start. We’ll be updating this web page regularly and we’ll let you know when a new blog goes up.

Contact us

Any questions? We’re happy to help.

Engaging junior learners and whānau from home

By Anne Kenneally & Rachel McNamara

A joint blog by Anne Kenneally and Rachel McNamara Ko koe ki tēna, ko āhau, ki tēnei kiwai o te kete. You take that handle of the kete and I’ll take this one. Teaching and learning is all a bit of a puzzle right now; not a simple child’s one with only one place where

Switch Your Locally-focused PLD Hours

One for my Kiwi readers.

View this email in your browser
Kia ora Michael

Tēnei te tuku i ngā mihi ki a koutou katoa i ngā tini āhuatanga o te wā

We hope you’re settling well into your home / work spaces.

You may have heard that the Ministry of Education is encouraging schools, kura, and Kāhui Ako to switch already contracted locally-focused PLD hours to support for distance learning, if you wish.
If you have already contracted hours to work with a CORE facilitator, and you’d like to switch the focus of your PLD, you can either:

– Contact your facilitator directly to let them know what support you need, or

– Wait for your facilitator to contact you in the next couple of days.

If you don’t have locally-focused PLD with CORE, and would like to work with our specialist facilitators in distance learning, you can contact us at:

Learning at home: start with relationships

By CORE Facilitation Team

He moana pukepuke e ekengia e te waka.  A choppy sea can be navigated. Firstly a huge mihi to all educators for everything you are doing for ākonga and communities as you prepare to teach in different ways. Ākonga and whānau will look to you for guidance and support as they adjust to thinking about

CORE Remains Open For Business

An item for my Kiwi readers.

Tēnā koe Michael

Pupuhi ana rā hau o mihi ki a koutou kei ngā mana, kei ngā reo e noho mai nā i ngā tōpito e whā o te motu. He wā piere nuku tēnei, ā, e manakohia ana e mātou o CORE kei te āta tautāwhi koutou i a koutou anō.

We’d like you to know that though our offices are temporarily closed, CORE remains open for business. We have moved quickly to working remotely to ensure the wellbeing of staff.

We understand that you will be going through significant disruption as we shift nationally to a remote model. We are here to support you with this process. For more than a decade, we have been working to push the boundaries of educational possibility. Our vision, for an equitable and thriving Aotearoa through learning, is as relevant as ever as we confront this crisis.

Our teams are ready with creative ways to work with you across a range of learning environments and communities, including bilingual and total immersion reo Māori settings.

Contact us
We hope you and your whānau are safe and well.

Ngā mihi,
Zan Tuake
