Event description

Description

Join us for our very first Ako Talk in 2018 with one of our inspiring Ako Advisors, Sarah Aiono.

Sarah is a teacher, doctoral student, homeschooling Mum and director of Longworth Education, an organization committed to the promotion of developmentally appropriate teaching practices in New Zealand schools.

In October 2017, Longworth Forest was recognized as a global education innovator by Finland's HundrED. Sarah will discuss her experience as a parent of children who attended Longworth Forest, an alternative schooling model supporting children to learn through play within a Forest setting all day, everyday. She will discuss her journey setting up New Zealand’s leading teacher training in play based learning, the development she sees in learning through play in NZ schools, the value learning through play has for kiwi kids, and how this has influenced her in her doctoral studies she is currently undertaking with Massey University.

Parking available at the venue.

Note: This is a fundraiser for Ako (www.akospace.com) which is starting in Term 1, 2018. Limited spaces available for the starting class- enrol now.
