Secondary Schools' Support Site

Visible Teaching and Learning

The Manaiakalani pedagogy ‘Learn, Create, Share’ or Ako, Hanga, Tohatoha, provides a shared pedagogy across our schools including secondary schools who have partnered with us.   Working with a common learning language allows for the individual differences of each school, enabling them to continue with their specific pedagogical focus.   For example, a number of our schools employ at least one of the following, Culturally Responsive and Relational Pedagogies, Ka Hikitia, Ka Hāpaitia, Universal Design for Learning, New Pedagogies for Deep Learning, SOLO and BLOOMS etc. 

This site brings together pedagogy, processes and procedures that we have identified best support the goals of Manaiakalani and contribute to enabling our high schools to improve learning outcomes for our young people.
