Beyond the classroom - updated

28/6/2020

The Beyond the classroom section of Enabling e-Learning has been updated with new and revised content.

Explore the opportunities and possibilities for schools to engage with families/whānau and the wider community – learning beyond the classroom, engaging with the community, place-based education, Te Taiao Ako, connecting with the families and communities of Pacific learners, social media, real-time reporting, and much more.

In the Learning beyond the classroom section, read how you can use digital technologies to personalise learning, make connections, and support distance learning.

There are lots of resources to help you get started, along with stories from schools who share their approaches. 

Matariki

11/6/2020

Matariki, the Māori New Year, is typically marked by the rise of the Matariki star cluster and the sighting of the next new moon. Some iwi observe the rise of the lone star Puaka as the beginning of the new year.

In 2020, the Matariki cluster will set on 15 May and return from 13–16 July. The Matariki period is 13–20 July. 

This page from New Zealand Curriculum Online has more information and suggestions for how you can get involved and celebrate Matariki with your students and community.
