van Rij, Vivien Jean – Waikato Journal of Education, 2022
Arguably New Zealand's best loved picturebook author/illustrator, Gavin Bishop invariably challenges populist power structures in his fiction and non-fiction.

Zou, Ying; Tan, Xudong – Waikato Journal of Education, 2022

Hest, Julie – Waikato Journal of Education, 2022
Unexpected twists and turns on the PhD journey can be directly related to the research itself, while others are related to the experience of the journey. For me, the most unexpected aspects were related to my health and saw me transition from writing and typing to dictating to the computer. This autoethnographic article is based on the lived…

The climate emergency mandates a refocusing of society and education on the relationship between humans and the more-than-human world. Emerging from decades of social constructionism that openly promoted climate science denial, social and educational theorising now engages with new materialist philosophies and the agency of matter. Physicist Karen…

Mohamed, Zahra – Waikato Journal of Education, 2022
Qualitative data analysis (QDA) is often depicted as a linear process that employs an organised structure to derive themes inductively or deductively. However, I realised the "messiness" of the process during my doctoral studies on primary teachers' use of digital technologies in ESL classrooms in Maldivian schools. My own experience…

Aporosa, S. Apo; Fa'avae, David Taufui Mikato – Waikato Journal of Education, 2021
Pacific practice is grounded in "vanua" and "fonua," Fijian and Tongan terms encapsulating notions of land, culture and people. "Fono at the Fale" and "Veiqaraqaravi Vakavanua" are expressions of "vanua" and "fonua" cultural practice and are facilitated by, and through, the use of kava.…
