Our Teachers' Share their Learning


We are all back at school for the second school term and many of our teachers are buzzing as they implement new learning from the 'non contact time' a.k.a school holidays.
  • For some it was a time to reflect, read, rewind and review in their own time and at their own pace.
  • For some there were heaps of conferences and workshops going on, so they headed out to learn with their peers.
  • For some it was an opportunity to learn by sharing - there is nothing like creating conference presentations to help you process your thinking and learning, and then the conversations with the people who attend your presentations provoke new ideas and learning.

We are very proud of the large number of Manaiakalani teachers, leaders and facilitators who exemplified our belief that 'Learn Create Share' begins with the adults, and got out there in the holidays and presented workshops locally and even internationally.

The two main conferences our team presented at were the GAFE Summit in Auckland and the BYOD -Making it Mobile Conference in Auckland.

This table collates the many wonderful presentations shared by the Manaiakalani Educators
