Need help building cultural capabilities?

Kia ora Michael

What does good culturally responsive practice look like?

As you head into a well-deserved change of pace, we thought it could be a good time to pose a very topical question and share some helpful resources.

Building cultural capability in learning communities contributes to equitable educational practice and, in turn, equitable educational outcomes. When te reo Māori and te ao Māori are valued and actively revitalised, all ākonga can be secure in their identity.

But what does good culturally responsive practice look like? And what could you do to build it?

We’ve created some resources that can help you answer these questions, so you can build cultural capability in your learning community – ultimately giving mana to Te Tiriti o Waitangi and empowering Māori learners to be successful as Māori.

How do you give mana to Te Tiriti o Waitangi? (PDF, 30KB)

Rachel McNamara’s blog discusses becoming culturally courageous and what educators can do to grow cultural capabilities.

Janelle Riki-Waaka talks about giving mana to Te Tiriti o Waitangi in this EDtalks video.

What’s the Treaty got to do with it? This recorded CORE Breakfast explores practical ways that future-focused learning communities can grow their understanding of Te Tiriti o Waitangi.

Citizenship In Education

An item from my Kiwi readers.

Watch the video – Shay’s thoughts on kirirarautanga | citizenship.

Nei te mihi nui ki a koutou,

We hope you’ve had a great week. With the July school holidays just around the corner, we bet you’ll be looking forward to a change of pace!

We recently sat down with CORE uLearn19 keynote speaker, Shay Wright, who captivated us with his calm and endearing manner. Shay discussed the importance of the lessons we can learn from indigenous nations. From his perspective it’s clear how we can learn from the kaitiaki of those nations which are thriving, and in turn, how we could gather that knowledge and use it in our roles as educators of current and future generations.

Kirirarautanga | Citizenship is one of the three themes at uLearn19. Shay’s experiences and strategies on this theme will set the scene on day one. Be captivated and connect with ideas to be implemented in your learning environment.

Ask Shay your questions

Shay invites you to pose your questions – do so by joining the edSpace online community. Once you’re logged in, head to Shay’s discussion forum.

Local leaders showcase their experiences

Our spotlight sessions and panels are made up of local leaders in education. They will share their real-life experiences and practical strategies across a range of themes including: wellbeing and resilience, managing data, curriculum design, unleashing innovation in Māori students, relationships, inquiry, assessment, systems thinking and solving complex issues using technology.

Customise your PLD

The opportunities at uLearn19 are endless – customise your calendar across the three days to align to your professional learning and development needs.
