Aotearoa NZ has a settler colonial education system. Educational policies and practices talk about equity, inclusion and student voice. I believe our most critical work is to design equitable teaching and learning experiences that are anchored in Tino rangatiratanga. We must talk more about who we are and who we are becoming.
I often think about these ideas when working in the garden and cooking.
Inspiring teachers to work in a interdisciplinary manner with mixed age groups and using creativity as a learning tool works remarkably well. This kind of fusion in teaching can play a part in shaping curriculums in the future.”
