November, Nancy; Sturm, Sean; Wolfgramm-Foliaki, 'Ema – Teaching and Learning Research Initiative, 2020
Current research into, and definitions of, historical literacy do not adequately acknowledge the cultural backgrounds of indigenous learners across the historical disciplines and levels. Nor do they recognise the vital role of historical literacy in empowering indigenous students. In talanoa (conversations) with Maori and Pasifika students and…

Mitchell, Linda; Bateman, Amanda; Kahuroa, Raella; Khoo, Elaine; Rameka, Lesley – Teaching and Learning Research Initiative, 2020
The global refugee crisis is affecting many young children (UNCHR, 2019). Refugee families face challenges of dealing with trauma and language barriers, and with different patterns of childrearing, gender roles, and social values (Broome & Kindon, 2008; Deng & Marlowe, 2013; McMillan & Gray, 2009; Mitchell & Ouko, 2012).

Hawera, Ngaarewa; Herewini, Leeana – Teaching and Learning Research Initiative, 2020
The proponents of Modern Learning Environments (MLE) or Innovative Learning Environments (ILE) are from largely non-indigenous backgrounds. In Aotearoa New Zealand, research about learning mathematics in an MLE is limited and focuses almost exclusively on English-Medium (EM) settings (Bisset, 2014; Murphy, 2016; Osborne, 2013). In contrast, this…

Kirk, Diana; Luxton-Reilly, Andrew; Tempero, Ewan – Teaching and Learning Research Initiative, 2020
New Zealand has a shortage of skilled workers in information technology (IT). Skills relating to computer programming (e.g., software engineer, applications programmer, software tester, web developer) all appear on the 2019 Long Term Skill Shortage List published by Immigration New Zealand. In many parts of the world, demand for computing…

Klymchuk, Sergiy; Thomas, Mike; Alexander, Jordan; Evans, Tanya; Gulyaev, Sergei; Liu, William; Novak, Julia; Murphy, Priscilla; Stephens, Jason; Zaliwski, Andrew – Teaching and Learning Research Initiative, 2020
In 2012 the New Zealand Government identified as a priority the need to address the undersupply of students studying STEM subjects for delivering its Business Growth Agenda. Low engagement and retention rates in STEM subjects contribute to the shortage of STEM graduates, producing a negative impact on the New Zealand economy. This Teaching and…

Hill, Mary; Dixon, Helen; Hawe, Eleanor – Teaching and Learning Research Initiative, 2020
New Zealand lacks valid and reliable evidence-based schedules with which to observe teachers' assessment for learning (AfL) practices. To date, classroom assessment observation schedules have mainly been derived theoretically, used in developing countries with conditions different from New Zealand classrooms (Kanjee & Hopfenbeck, personal…

White, E. Jayne; Redder, Bridgette – Teaching and Learning Research Initiative, 2019
Our study highlights how careful attention to, reflection on, and critical engagement with the dialogues of 2-year-olds in preschool 'mixed-age' settings can help teachers work more effectively with these learners. The teachers in our study carried out in-depth coding of, and reflection on, comprehensive video footage of dialogues involving…

Wright, Noeline; McNae, Rachel – Teaching and Learning Research Initiative, 2019
This project set out to explore how completely new schools, occupying completely new classroom spaces, create themselves as schools. At its inception, a new school has only its buildings; everything else must be developed. In particular, the school must develop its vision for learners, and how this is reflected through school culture, routines,…

This project aimed to assess the impact of online citizen science (OCS) participation on the science education of primary school children in New Zealand. Four exploratory cases were used to examine the nature and impact of embedding OCS projects that use web-based online tools within primary classroom environments. Findings provide key insights…

Furness, Jane; Hunter, Judy – Teaching and Learning Research Initiative, 2019
Aotearoa New Zealand's attention to adult literacy and numeracy (L+N) education arose from the results of the OECD / Statistics Canada International Literacy surveys begun in the mid-1990s, when, as a nation, the country achieved unexpectedly low results for L+N proficiency. The Government responded with an adult L+N strategy (Ministry of…

Yoon, Caroline; Moala, John Griffith – Teaching and Learning Research Initiative, 2018
Mathematics can be viewed as complex structures comprising intricate and profoundly useful webs of relationships. Students can experience mathematics in this way when working on mathematical tasks such as problem-solving, modelling, investigations or problem posing. Yet these kinds of tasks are seldom implemented in many upper-secondary and…

Bourke, Roseanna; O'Neill, John; Loveridge, Judith – Teaching and Learning Research Initiative, 2018
The authors of this report explored children's informal learning outside of school and then investigated how this knowledge can enhance teaching and learning practice in the classroom. The authors worked alongside children to develop a conceptual framework of the variations in how Year 5 students learn informally in their everyday lives outside…
