Kia ora Michael

We are excited to let you know registrations are now open! And for the first time ever, we’re launching uLearn with the full programme also live!

Held 13-14 October, this year’s online education conference gives all educators in Aotearoa the opportunity to engage with a diverse programme. MC’s Stacey Morrison and Janelle Riki-Waaka host uLearn21, where you will be inspired by leading keynote speakers, dive deeper with activators and explore Aotearoa e tōnui nei | Thriving Aotearoa with all of the uLearn21 presenters. Once again, all three languages of Aotearoa are a part of uLearn: Te reo Māori, English and NZSL.

We look at what’s needed to evolve from a state of merely surviving to one of actively thriving: individually, collectively, culturally, and into the future.

With the new Matariki public holiday starting in 2022, this year’s Matariki is a great opportunity to build your knowledge.

We’re excited to join with Dr Rangi Matamua and Living by the Stars, to co-host a FREE online seminar, Matariki Te Whetū o te Tau, on 29 June 2021.

What you’ll learn

  • What Matariki is.
  • Where Matariki can be found.
  • How Matariki fits into a Māori division of time.
  • The major themes and principles associated with Matariki.
  • How Matariki will inform our new Matariki holiday (starting in 2022).
Delivered as a livestreamed seminar within the Facebook event, Matariki Te Whetū o te Tau will be presented by Dr Rangi Matamua, Director of Living by the Stars. A leading expert in Matariki and Māori Astronomy, Rangi has extensive knowledge about our skies, star clusters, galaxies and planets.
Matariki 2021 is the best opportunity we have to learn more about next year’s public holiday, so we wanted to make sure it was accessible and free to all across Aotearoa. We’ve made it pretty easy – simply hit the register button below. It will take you to the co-hosted Facebook event, then click ‘Going’.
Register >
Know others who may be interested? Feel free to share this email, or you can easily share the event with whānau, friends and colleagues from within Facebook.

Let’s build knowledge this year, so we can know more about what we will be celebrating next year!

Ngā mihi nui,
Living by the Stars and CORE Education

Games-based learning: the door to equity through agency

By Fiona Summerfield, Jess Bond & Stephen Lowe

Did you know that in Aotearoa only 4% of digital technology employees are Māori? and 27% are female? (New Zealand Digital Skills Forum, 2021) Perhaps you could have guessed that. We know digital content affects almost every aspect of 21st century life. Our future digital creators need to reflect our varied cultures and world views.

Kia ora Michael

We let you know on 5 May that we were saying haere rā to two of CORE’s online community spaces, CENZ and edSpace.

As a subscriber to one or both of these we just want to remind you that the lights will be turned off for CENZ and edSpace on Wednesday 2 June.

Selected resources from both sites will be migrated onto the CORE website soon.

Ngā mihi,
