Kia ora koutou

What works for Māori Learners?  You may know, you may not - You may have some ideas and you may be seeking new ideas.  

You may want to share something that has worked for you OR you may want to share something that you've seen work.

How have you improved Māori student achievement?  Let us know how you know.

How have you improved Māori student engagement?  Let us know how you know.

How have you hooked your Māori students on to learning?  Let us know how you know.

Are you using a blend of face to face and virtual approaches to improve student learning?  If yes, how? - let us know.

I would love to read your kōrero - That's a bit of a play on words for you.

There are a lot of success stories out there but I want to read it, hear it & see it here.

There is a Māori whakatauki -

E kore te kumara e kōrero mō tōna ake reka - The kumara will not speak of its own sweetness.  

Share about someone else if you are not comfortable about sharing about yourself.

    Kia ora Kelly, You have raised very important questions for all of us. As teachers and facilitators, we read about 'Maori enjoying and achieving success as Maori.' What does that really mean? How does success look like for Maori students? I think we need to provide learning experiences that relate to our students, where our students' identity , language and culture is affirmed and that our children can bring their own experiences to their learning.(Russell Bishop) I feel that we need to know our Maori students as individuals as well, as each individual's experiences and backgrounds are different.
