Hetaraka, Maia; Meiklejohn-Whiu, Selena; Webber, Melinda; Jesson, Rebecca – New Zealand Journal of Educational Studies, 2023
Many theories support the idea that children's literacy learning develops as they learn to make meaning through interactions with others. These assertions are premised on the understanding that childhood literacy serves various social purposes and that these literacies are learned through participating in social contexts. In this position paper,…

The COVID-19 pandemic sent New Zealand universities into crisis, and as a key crisis response measure, classes were mostly moved online.

Hetaraka, Maia – New Zealand Journal of Educational Studies, 2022
The history of educational policy-making in Aotearoa New Zealand is also a history in myth-making. Myths about Maori in education are deeply embedded in educational and social thought, because they have their origins in the first political interactions between Maori and Pakeha. These interactions were motivated by contradicting forces--Maori…

Tuohy, Catherine – New Zealand Journal of Educational Studies, 2022
Tertiary education policy in Aotearoa New Zealand has been shaped by political, economic, and social ideologies. Although universities and polytechnics are both tertiary education providers, they do not occupy this space on an equal footing.

Hoskins, Te Kawehau; Jones, Alison – New Zealand Journal of Educational Studies, 2022
'Indigenous inclusion' has been the most common approach to Maori engagement in university education in Aotearoa-New Zealand. Increasingly, another orientation, based on different premises, which might be called 'indigenisation', is becoming evident. We argue that indigenisation offers more hopeful possibilities for New Zealand universities as…

Jones, Alison – New Zealand Journal of Educational Studies, 2021
How did Eruera Pare Hongi--who had an impact on New Zealand's pre-Treaty constitutional and literacy history--come to get his name? Eruera Pare is a transliteration of Edward Parry, a famous Arctic explorer, also known as Admiral Sir William Edward Parry.

Public libraries around the world have been re-configuring their sites to include 'makerspaces'--as a dedicated area where learners engage in creating, inventing, designing, discovering, coding, building and exploring.

Severinsen, Christina; Mika, Jason; Hutson, Rochelle – New Zealand Journal of Educational Studies, 2020
This is a reflective account of an inquiry learning process that took place as a small country school corrected its name from Tiritea to Turitea. We discuss the process as an example of how boards in mainstream schools can work collaboratively to uphold te ao Maori (the Maori world) in schools and to recognise obligations under the Te Tiriti o…

Classroom discussions represent a common learning activity for students in schools. The prevailing discourse has focused on how to encourage as many students as possible to participate actively in classroom discussions with the assumption that only vocal students are engaged learners. The present essay critically challenges this position by…

Ruth, Damian – New Zealand Journal of Educational Studies, 2020
This article contrasts specific aspects of indigenous world views and wisdom on the one hand with specific themes in capitalism, colonisation, corporate interests, technology and education, on the other and argues that there is a fundamental clash of values between them. There is no assumption of a homogenous indigenous wisdom and no claim is made…
