He uri ahau nō Mataatua waka, nō Tūhoe me Te Whakatohea iwi, he kaitakawaenga Māori mō LwDT.  Ngā mihi ki a tātou katoa. Tikanga of karakia starting a hui is automatic, its a norm present in my whānau life and my work life. When meeting with colleagues face to face, we start and conclude hui with karakia and waiata. So it seemed only natural to continue this practice when meeting in a virtual environment, using online tools such as skype, google hangout, appear.in - although the time lag in google hangout often makes for an interesting waiata session laugh....How do you and your akonga maintain tikanga Māori in a virtual environment? What tikanga transposes naturally in to an online environment? 

Ngā mihi, nā Daph

    Te uri o Mataatua waka tena koe. 

    I practice tikanga wherever and when ever possible with all my students, either this be formal or informal in all LwDT formats. This does not make any difference to kanohi ki te kanohi apart from it been a digital format.

    Mihimihi ki te tangata is somewhat a practice that we deliver ahakoa ko te aha. I think its practical that we mihimihi ki te tangata in no matter what form, written, email, hangout, facebook, and etc.

     

    He pai kee te paatai nei.

    Nga Mihi rarau.
