A kōrero with Rawiri Toia and Arohanui Allen

“Instead of kaiako being freaked out - "oh no, how am I going to do that” - the key is how are you teaching our mokopuna so they can be empowered to find out more in that space?” - Rawiri Toia

Join us in this insightful episode as Rawiri Toia and Arohanui Allen unpack that important journey kaiako across Aotearoa face as they embrace the redesign of the national curriculum. Rawiri discusses the significance of introducing the four pou and the pivotal role both tamariki and kaiako play in nurturing and creating these principles for both English and Māori mediums. Explore the key questions: How does the kaupapa align with the four pou? How can kaiako embrace mātauranga Māori and effectively teach Māori histories? Is it my responsibility to know everything? 

Tune in for an inspiring kōrero on the importance of respecting and empowering ākonga to discover their own narratives.
