Event description

Description

A Hui for anyone interested in knowledge building. Whether an experienced knowledge building teacher or someone who wants to find out more, come along ready to share stories, discuss, workshop and generally spend time learning in a collaborative, informal environment. There is no cost involved. Just come along and get involved.

Knowledge Building promotes key principles which are designed to meet the growing need to re-imagine how schools meet emerging challenges. Scardamalia (2002) describes twelve key principles which together promote learning as a process based on curiosity, exploration and questioning, of improving ideas as a community of learners, and encouraging student ownership of the learning process and real world problem solving. It is a process that should be an integral part of the paradigm shift that needs to occur in education. It also places values such as “innovation, inquiry, and curiosity", identified as integral to the New Zealand Curriculum, at its very centre.
