Learning stories are a moment in time when past, present and future come together in a way that will support the child to know who they are as a learner.  Traditional wisdom, 'clothed within a whakatauki' can be used in a modern world to add another lens to the learning that is taking place for tamariki.

This workshop will look at the weaving of traditional knowledge inside Learning Stories. The new Te Whāriki uses whakatauki as a way to highlight and acknowledge the bicultural aspect of our curriculum. The writers have drawn on traditional wisdom for a modern world. Teachers writing learning stories can do the same. 

Let’s discuss how!

Tū mai e moko. Te Whakaata o ō mātua. Te moko o ō tīpuna. Stand strong, O moko.  The reflection of your parents. The blueprint of your ancestors.
