Manaiakalani Kāhui Ako
We are a Kāhui Ako of 12 schools who share the vision to lead future focused learning in connected communities.
Our young people are actively involved, lifelong and literate learners who are confident and connected; ready for employment in tomorrow’s market and contributing positively to their community. Learners who are at home in the digital world...
Each year our Kāhui Ako Teachers model an exemplary Teaching as Inquiry cycle and share their progress publicly on their blog, at regular intervals. In November we come together for our annual Bursts and Bubbles where their Inquiry is shared as Impact Bursts in a panel setting.
These are short (3 minutes), sharp and VERY interesting!
