HīAko explores the idea of learning through play and awakening the potential within.
HīAko is a six to eight week inquiry and learning programme for students, and a professional development experience for teachers as facilitators. Much like iNVENTIONATOR, HīAko is a three phase approach to solve real life problems that matter to students. Virtual support, and establishment of a pathway for future professional learning is part of HīAko.
A one day professional learning, mana enhancing experience for teachers as facilitators; facilitate students to problem solve rather than trying to teach solutions to students.
8 hours of online support for teachers over the duration of HīAko.
2 hours of confidence building support for teachers.
Four weeks for students to solve real life problems that matter to them by generating accelerated solutions. CORE facilitators will organise confidence building games for teachers as a further method to enhance presentation skills of students.
Through this phase students are encouraged to include whānau, hapū, iwi and community throughout their learning journey increasing the potential for a collective learning and solutions approach.
A two-day event designed to accelerate outcomes.
The first day is specifically for whānau, hapū, iwi and the community, allowing an opportunity for them to further contribute to ākonga in a significant way. The potential of the contribution is unlimited, and does not solely focus on financial assistance.
Akonga showcase their ideas to industry partners allowing an opportunity for them to further contribute to akonga in a significant way. The potential of the contribution is unlimited, and does not solely focus on financial assistance.
