 “What are the things that happened for them that perhaps aren’t happening for a number of tamariki in our schools? And what could we do that would actually shift the experience of those people, so that they could experience what those three speakers did in terms of realising a potential that lay inside of them?” – Derek Wenmoth

Join Kathe Tawhiwhirangi as she has a kōrero with Derek Wenmoth, the founder of FutureMakers and principal consultant at Tātai Aho Rau Core Education. Derek and Kathe explore many topics in this podcast, such as the important, positive and recent shift of putting learners at the centre of our educational practices, as well as a growing understanding of the uniqueness of each individual ākonga. Derek also speaks briefly about education as a fundamental right for all, and what it means in today's educational landscape.

This podcast also explores some of the overarching concepts explored by the first three Kaihautū | Keynote speakers of uLearn23: David Letele, Pania Newton, and Cha’nel Kaa-Luke. Themes of identity, adversity, and education spark the question of why some learners excel when others don’t, and what educators can do to ensure that all ākonga succeed.
