The maker movement in schools aims to give kids the time, space and resources to become inventors. Students can use tools like electronics, thermoplastics, robotics, programming, game design and 3D printing to unleash their creativity. Think of the maker movement in schools as being like joining granddad's shed to a startup incubator with some good old kiwi number 8 wire.
This seminar will explore ways to enable schools to create environments that empower Pasifika students to be who and what they are with reference to National Standards and NCEA assessment tools. We will discuss several avenues of support for school leaders and teachers, as well as how to raise engagement and achievement through culturally responsive assessment.
