“As global citizens in a rapidly changing and increasingly connected world, children need to be adaptive, creative and resilient. They need to learn ‘how to learn’ so that they can engage with new contexts, opportunities and challenges with optimism and resourcefulness. For these reasons, Te Whāriki emphasises the development of knowledge, skills, attitudes and dispositions that support lifelong learning.” Te Whāriki English version (2017 p.7)
Our Keynote speakers for this year are Emeritus Professor Margaret Carr & Emeritus Professor Helen May, as original writers of Te Whāriki (1996) and Dr Lesley Rameka and Brenda Soutar, as writers engaged in Te Whāriki (2017). This will be a fabulous opportunity for all kaiako to connect with the past and present, and consider our role in the futures of children’s learning lives. The keynote speakers will address the issue surrounding Te Whāriki; pedagogy, pathways and progress, and what this might mean for assessment as we move forward in the 21st century. We also have a range of fantastic workshops to choose from!
