Whakapapa: Foundation, process and potential

Professional development (PD) Auckland

Posted: 19 September 2023
Notice reference #: 1HAcLu

Presented by Emma Parangi, Educational Leadership Project

Learning stories provide a snapshot of where a tamaiti is in their learning, their connections, and their trajectory. Learning stories weave together the moving strands of where that tamaiti is in space and time.

When we craft learning stories we aim to be guided by an authentic knowledge of who tamariki are. For tangata whenua, tamariki are a continuation of whakapapa which extends back to the beginnings of space and time themselves. This is a complex concept embedded in a Māori worldview of time, space and relationality.

Join Emma in this wānanga to explore whakapapa as the source, journey and possibility of āhurei for the tamariki Māori we learn alongside.

This workshop is part of the Celebrating Learning Stories Conference on 14 October in Auckland. The cost includes a full day of presentations, plus morning tea and lunch.
