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,…

Sands, Lorraine; McChesney, Katrina – New Zealand Journal of Educational Studies, 2023
Learning stories have been used in Aotearoa New Zealand early learning settings for over two decades to capture children's learning while honouring the intent of "Te Whariki" to nurture children's languages, cultures, and identities. This article provides a brief overview of a listening, dialogic investigation into ways the community of…

Chu-Fuluifaga, Cherie; Reynolds, Martyn – New Zealand Journal of Educational Studies, 2023
Pacific education is an area of priority in Aotearoa New Zealand. It involves the teaching of Pacific students by a workforce that is largely of European origin. Pacific communities value education and have the capability to contribute to the understandings of teachers as they seek to provide the kinds of service that communities want to see. This…

Coulter, Sarah-Kay – New Zealand Journal of Educational Studies, 2023
There is a conflict between the claims of Maori sovereignty and the imposition of State legislation on Maori children. This conflict of interest has been given very little consideration in the public sphere. This research-informed article speculates that despite legislation ensuring that education attendance is fixed as a legal obligation for all…

Furness, Jane; Rua, Mohi; Masters-Awatere, Bridgette; Piercy-Cameron, Gemma; Cochrane, Bill; Heaton, Sharyn – New Zealand Journal of Educational Studies, 2023
Globally, literacy can be conceived of in different ways. Two perspectives that have influenced adult literacy policy internationally are the economic functionalist and the sociocultural. In Aotearoa New Zealand, Maori educators have repeatedly advanced a matauranga Maori perspective of literacy. This perspective has parallels with the embodied,…

Hetaraka, Maia; Meiklejohn-Whiu, Selena; Webber, Melinda; Jesson, Rebecca – New Zealand Journal of Educational Studies, 2023
Western literacy theories and models often reflect Eurocentric notions of literacy and literacy practices. In Aotearoa New Zealand, the prevalence of these conceptualisations is linked to issues of power and result in a narrow and inaccurate framing of Maori tamariki (children). In this article Tiritiria, a Maori philosophical view of knowledge,…

Williams, Ngaroma; Fletcher, Jo; Ma, Ting – New Zealand Journal of Educational Studies, 2023
Te Whariki, the first bicultural early childhood education curriculum in Aotearoa New Zealand, gained national and international attention. While there was widespread acceptance of its bicultural intent, Te Whariki was not well understood and implemented as a bicultural curriculum. Early childhood education teachers lacked confidence and struggled…

Reynolds, Martyn – New Zealand Journal of Educational Studies, 2022
A relational approach focusses on connections between things, assuming that all things exist in relatedness. In this article, attention is given to the relationship between innovative learning environments (ILE) as described in literature, and elements of the field of Pacific education. In order to investigate this relationship, I take a layered…

Bell, Avril; Russell, Elizabeth – New Zealand Journal of Educational Studies, 2022
From 2022, New Zealand schools are teaching a new compulsory history curriculum that aims to teach diverse New Zealand histories, while foregrounding the centrality of Maori histories and the impacts of colonisation. The new curriculum will upend a long history of 'forgetting' the nation's contentious and conflictual past, and in particular the…

Denston, Amanda; Martin, Rachel; Fickel, Letitia Hochstrasser; O'Toole, Veronica – New Zealand Journal of Educational Studies, 2022
International data provide evidence of the strong association between socio-emotional learning and wellbeing in students. However, while socio-emotional learning programmes are generally viewed as effective in developing socio-emotional capacities in students, culture is rarely considered within frameworks underpinning such programmes. In Aotearoa…

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…

I highlight characteristics of the active stance adopted by participants towards teaching and learning the difficult histories of…

Surtees, Nicola; Taleni, Leali'ie'e Tufulasi; Ismail, Raesha; Rarere-Briggs, Benita; Stark, Robyn – New Zealand Journal of Educational Studies, 2021
Transforming practices in initial teacher education and school and early childhood education contexts to support the success of Pasifika students and children can be challenging. Palagi educators, in particular, may find their practices are constrained by bureaucratic systems, processes and professional norms in ways that limit thinking about and…
