In this recorded professional learning session Tame Malcolm (Kaimahi Matua at Te Tira Whakamātaki) and Greta Dromgool from the Science Learning Hub explore kaitiakitanga.
Many of us are familiar with this concept and may even use it in our teaching. This session provides an opportunity to delve more deeply into the meaning and history of the concept of kaitiakitanga.
Ka mau e wehi! Thank you very much Tame and Greta. Kia oraParticipant
During the webinar Tame will share some of his understandings – including pūrākau connected to caring for the whenua.
This session will be valuable for primary and secondary school teachers as well as other educators who want to include mātauranga in their practice.
Ngā mihi Tame and Greta. Always engaging and lots of ideas.Participant
