Kaupapa Māori research is a generic term used to describe a range of practice relating particularly to research by, with, and for Māori. The use of kaupapa Māori models and frameworks within one qualitative research project "Mātauranga Motuhake" includes a wharenui model, access to research sites by whakawhānaungatanga and an empowering consent process. A wānanga drew on the principles derived from the Treaty of Waitangi for analyses of both the process and the content of the research with examples from one case study presented here.

This paper attempts to illuminate ancient pedagogies, which resonate within contemporary educational contexts. Findings from the research on Māori traditional child rearing and teaching and learning practices could inform and contribute positively to today's learning environments. It is worth noting that ancient conventions in education are sometimes replicated in what is currently termed best practice.

Paper presented at the New Zealand Association for Research in Education (NZARE) conference, University of Waikato, Hamilton, 30 November - 3 December 2000.

The Assessment Resource Banks (ARBs) are computerised banks of assessment material that are available on the Internet. They are linked to the current New Zealand curriculum statements in mathematics, science, and English. This workshop will introduce and demonstrate the ARBs. This will be followed by a description of the diagnostic potential of the ARBs. The final part will be an interactive discussion of the diagnostic dimension of a selection of resources from the mathematics ARB.

The report includes a literature review.  It outlines key issues that emerged and gives suggestions for further research.

Publication type: Research report

How well Māori children do at school is strongly linked with how well parents and children relate to school staff.

Māori parents want their children to have a better education than they had, and have a strong wish to be involved in their child's schooling, concludes Māori parents and education.

But Māori parents need more guidance on how best to support their children's education at home, and how to access information or services to help them give that support.

A learning story is a documented account of a child's learning event. These stories are structured around five key behaviours: taking an interest, being involved, persisting with difficulty, expressing a point of view or a feeling, and taking responsibility. A teaching story, on the other hand, is about evaluating practice.
