TTT April news 2016


Kia ora, talofa lava, kia orana, mālō e lelei and welcome to Te Toi Tupu pānui for April 2016 from the Consortium Manager's Desk.

Good news whānau, the first graduate of the Master of Professional Learning (a qualification instigated by Te Toi Ora) has been completed. Congratulations to Helen Cooper on a great achievement while working full time.


A number of Education Review Office reports and resources have been released this year. Here are a selection:

Pasifika flower


"I Too Am Auckland" - a blog post from Teanua Tuiono about his experience of being a Pacific Island student at Auckland University. A nice read for everyone supported with interviews by educators and their experiences with Pasifika in Aotearoa New Zealand.

Some kai for thought in these resources...

Please feel free to share these resources with your schools and kura.

Kōrero Māori:

Kua kitea e koe? 
Have you seen it?

Ko te aha? 

Ko tāku waea pūkoro?
My cell phone?

Ae, Kao.
Yeah, Nah.

We are currently creating project infographics to visualise the quantitative data from 2015. Infographics are a clever way to use graphs, pictographs and images to accurately relay data in a visually appealing, authentic way. This could be something Communities of Learners might want to consider when representing and sharing data with each other. Previous infographics can be viewed in the Impact tab of the Te Toi Tupu website. Anyone wanting to know more about how to create digital infographics, please feel free to contact me.


Impact stories 2016 are now underway. The difference this year, is that these stories will highlight PLD successes project-wide where a short paragraph with digital artifacts will be embedded to exemplify key aspects to celebrate for each PLD project. Previous impact stories can also be viewed in the Impact tab of the Te Toi Tupu website. Please feel free to share both Infographics and Impact stories with your schools/kura


Until next time,

Hei konā mai
