  1. CENTRE FOR EDUCATIONAL DEVELOPMENTKa Hikitia – Implications and ImplementationFacilitator:Colleen Douglashttp://ced.massey.ac.nz

  2. Ka hikitia • Ka Hikitia means to step up, to lift up or to lengthen one’s stride • In this document it means stepping up the performance of the education system to ensure Maori are enjoying success as Maori

  3. The Challenge It means making Maori education success the highest priority and doing everything we can, as part of an education sector committed to ensuring all learners succeed, to realise Maori potential in all that we do Karen Sewell

  4. Stepping Up Ownership Leadership Accountability Change from deficit model to maximisimg potential

  5. Why focus on Maori learners? ˉ • Maori success = New Zealand success • Maori student success = teachers’ success • Maori student failure = ???? ˉ ˉ ˉ

  6. The strategic outcome … Maori enjoying education success as Maori ˉ ˉ

  7. Maori potential in education ˉ ˉ

  8. Three key principles: • Maori potential • Cultural advantage • Inherent capability ˉ

  9. Ako The key to realising Maori education potential is ako. Key aspects of ako are: • Language, identity and culture. • Knowing where students come from and building on what they bring count • Productive partnerships. Students, whānau, iwi and educators working together to produce better outcomes

  10. Maori enjoying education success as Maori: ˉ ˉ • Maori learners working with others to determine successful learning and education pathways • Maori learners excelling and successfully realising their cultural distinctiveness and potential ˉ ˉ

  11. and … • Maori learners successfully participating in and contributing to teao Maori • Maori learners gaining the universal skills and knowledge needed to successfully participate in and contribute to Aotearoa New Zealand and the world. ˉ ˉ ˉ

  12. The four focus areas of Ka Hikitia: • Foundation years • Young people engaged in learning • Maori language education • Organisational success ˉ

  13. What works well for learners? • Professional leaders who lead professional learning, build partnerships with Maori communities and use data to manage change • Effective teaching where there are high expectations of, and strong learning relationships between teachers, students, families and whanau ˉ ˉ

  14. Traditional Western approach to teaching: • What? • Why? • How? • Who? (if indeed it is considered at all)

  15. Traditional Maori approach to teaching: ˉ • Who? (connections) • Why? (purpose) • How? (methodology) • What? (knowledge)

  16. Knowing who you are • Self esteem is critical to learning • Governs receptivity, preparedness and capacity for learning • Anchors learning

  17. Culturally enhanced learning environment

  18. Personal vs Impersonal ˉ • Making connections – Maori learners • Who are you? • Where are you from? • Are you really interested in me? • Can I trust you? • Do you really care? • Should I follow you?

  19. and … • The personal approach will work for all learners • But the fact is an impersonal one will not work for Maori ˉ

  20. Creating a culturally responsive classroom • Teachers who value and support cultural diversity • Programmes that incorporate cultural knowledge, experiences and values • Teaching and assessment that utilises culturally preferred ways of learning – peer tutoring, collaborative learning and student involvement in decision making Bevan Brown 2008

  21. So … Ka Hikitia is not seeking a special response … but rather a professional response
