Learn, Create, Share

Our pedagogy ‘Learn, Create, Share’ puts our young people at the very centre of their learning.

Teaching and learning is clearly the umbrella mechanism to activate and sustain the pedagogy, which is essential for learning, whānau engagement and device readiness.

There is an expectation that participants will constantly reflect on how well they are doing in relation to the Learn Create Share pedagogy.

This pedagogy drives toward visible and ubiquitous learning, strong learner agency and connectedness to grow knowledge.
