Free ANZH interactive webinar

Filed under: virtual school — Michael K. Barbour @ 3:03 pm
Tags: , , , , ,

The first of two items for my Kiwi readers.

Kia ora

You will probably be aware the Ministry of Education finalised the Aotearoa New Zealand’s histories curriculum content on 17 March. From 2023, all ākonga will start to experience learning Aotearoa New Zealand’s histories as part of their classroom programmes.

The histories curriculum content uses the Understand, Know, Do elements and the progressions model. This shows what changes to the New Zealand Curriculum might look like as part of a refresh of the national curriculum.

To support teachers with the new content and model, the Ministry of Education is hosting a free interactive webinar, facilitated by CORE. Many dates throughout Terms 2 and 3 are available, so you can choose which one works best for you.

Learn more
What are the features?

  • An overview of the Aotearoa New Zealand’s histories curriculum content.
  • How the Understand, Know, Do model weaves together to support learning.
  • Exploration of stories, using the histories content as a framework (to think about how to approach the teaching of Aotearoa New Zealand’s histories).
  • The opportunity for questions on histories to be answered.

Who is it for?

  • Kaiako of akōnga in years 1-10.
  • Leaders.
  • PLD facilitators.
  • Museum educators.
  • Other support staff who might support Aotearoa New Zealand’s histories in schools and kura.
This is part of the first package of support for Aotearoa New Zealand’s histories. The Ministry will provide ongoing support through 2022 and beyond, for histories and social sciences.

Do you want to build your very own superpower?

Filed under: virtual school — Michael K. Barbour @ 9:03 pm
Tags: , , , , ,

An item for my Kiwi readers.

The Art of Intentional Listening

Kia ora Michael

Listening to someone can be challenging, intentionally listening to them even more so.

Intentional listening can be a superpower for an effective coach and mentor. Leaving gaps in the kōrero (conversation) means other people can be heard, which also helps you better understand.

When done right, listening shows respect, builds trust and feeds strong relationships. It can also lead to meaningful change.

You can activate your ability to intentionally listen in this free, 45-minute webinar.

Meet the facilitators

Accredited Facilitator (English-medium)
