Rā 67, Rāapa 8 o Poutū-te-rangi 2017

My first (hopefully not my last) CORE Education retreat. The whole company in Hanmer Springs to learn together, explore ideas, be creative and reimagine. Alex talked to us about how we should privilege the articles of Te Tiriti o Waitangi  over the principles.  He suggested that the principles are fine but too vague, too open to interpretation- maybe they present too many barriers. But the articles are more enabling. 

It made so much sense but I need time to unpack it more and really think about it.




Teacher of Languages first and foremost but passionate about learning and teaching. I have been learning how to blend technology into my teaching for the last twenty years and worked for seven years supporting colleagues to build their skills and confidence using digital technologies as part of their teaching and learning. In 2014 I was honoured to be awarded an eFellowship from Core Education which was a challenging and fun year. I am now a Connected Learning Advisor with Core Education. In that role I support school leaders in their planning and implementation of technology. I love being in the outdoors and spend as much of my time as I can in the bush, by the ocean and on mountains.
