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…

Literature about education in New Zealand and internationally over the past 30 years has increasingly focused on the need for effective school leadership.

Tupou, Jessica; Loveridge, Judith – New Zealand Journal of Educational Studies, 2019
Computer Science (CS) education is being increasingly included in primary school curricula across New Zealand.

From the outset, the Labour-led Coalition Government of 2017 was intent on 'transformation'.

Warren, Alison – New Zealand Journal of Educational Studies, 2019
Caring occupies a contested space in early childhood teaching. Caring is valued as crucial to children's physical and emotional wellbeing but, at the same time, it is undervalued as separate from education and more difficult to measure. This article argues for reconceptualising care as complex, dynamic, problematic, political, and assembled in…

This article considers the experience of walking the 850-km Camino del Norte to Santiago de Compostela in Spain as a metaphor for an inner camino: an inner way of developing resilience.
