New digital technology areas were added to the New Zealand primary school technology curriculum in 2020.

Ram, Rajesh – Waikato Journal of Education, 2022
In this era of pandemics, asylum seekers, and conflict between super powers, social sciences are a critical subject that can help develop young people who can not only recognise racial and social discrimination but also injustices at a regional, national, and global scale. Mainstream subjects, such as sociology, routinely support learning in the…

Fa'avae, Ioane Aleke – Waikato Journal of Education, 2022
The introduction is part of a Pasifika/Pacific education ongoing conversation. Like my colleagues, this intellectual space enables voice amongst other voices often sidelined even within the wider Pacific people category. My fronting of the question, "Ko e leo ke eke ha?" is intentional in me seeking to claim space for tagata Niue and…

Fa'avae, David Taufui Mikato – Waikato Journal of Education, 2022

My "talatalanoa" sits alongside Pacific educators' voices in this volume of the Waikato Journal of Education, colleagues from Aotearoa New Zealand's Realm Nations of the Cook Islands, Niue and Tokelau. While adopting a place-based and Indigeno-centric Pasifika/Pacific gaze…

Ryman, Cynthia K. – Waikato Journal of Education, 2022
In order to disrupt hegemonic thinking, the foundation of biases on which this thinking is built must first be confronted. I became increasingly aware of the detrimental impact of implicit bias during a research project I conducted in a children's literature course with preservice teachers. In this research project, I analysed the responses of the…

The reawakening of the Indigenous Gamilaraay language in northern inland New South Wales, Australia involves righting two centuries of prohibition and mistreatment after invasion by English-speaking settlers.

Towards the end of the first COVID-19 lockdown in early 2020, in Aotearoa New Zealand, the authors conducted a small-scale study to gain insight into children's responses to the pandemic restrictions.

Boulard, Florence – Waikato Journal of Education, 2022
New Caledonia is a French overseas territory in the South Pacific with a long history of differing attitudes towards independence (Fisher, 2019). The local government aims to challenge French cultural hegemony by building a "New Caledonian School" (Gouvernement de la Nouvelle-Calédonie, 2016). That is, a school in which students are…

Chen, Emma; Liu, Yina – Waikato Journal of Education, 2022
Canadian multicultural picturebooks greatly influence both children's and educators' being and becoming. Identity is closely related to our engagement with literacy practices.

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. As such, his books are ideal vehicles for teaching children about such broad topics as race relations, colonisation, migration, class conflicts, gender relationships, environmental issues…

Zou, Ying; Tan, Xudong – Waikato Journal of Education, 2022
"Best behaviour" picturebooks, also known as "making good habits" or "teaching good manners" picturebooks, have explicit educational intentions that imply a culturally hegemonic voice. Despite this problematic characteristic, these picturebooks are welcomed by both parents and the market in China. Using extant…

Ong, Patricia A. L. – Waikato Journal of Education, 2022
Children's literature is potentially a starting point to present critical multicultural concepts to young learners. It may also be a medium through which historical and contemporary ideologies of society are encouraged in the young learners. This process may be viewed as a form of cultural hegemony when the choices of literature and reading…
