Learn, Create, Share @ St Francis

Last year we were fortunate to be offered the opportunity to become a part of the Manaiakalani Outreach programme.

Being a part of this programme affords the learners in our community many opportunities. Mark Maddren, a Manaiakalani Outreach Facilitator will be working with staff and students to help embed the Manaiakalani pedagogy over the next three years.

The Manaiakalani pedagogy ‘Learn, Create, Share’ puts our young people at the very centre of their learning.

Since the beginning of 2018 our Year 5-8 students have been involved in the Manaiakalani Outreach Programme and the learning pedagogy of Learn, Create, Share.

Mark visits the Tumu and Kaupeka Hubs and work alongside teachers and students. This is great professional development for teachers and also a great learning opportunity for our students. They are learning how to look after and use their device, with tools and tips, to get the most out of them. Mark is sharing with them ways to be creative on their Chromebooks eg making animations and blog profiles.

Each child in Years 5-8 has their own individual blog. Please make sure you have subscribed to your child's blog so you can be part of the learning that is shared.

Mark is also providing professional development to all St Francis of Assisi Staff. We are unpacking the Learn, Create, Share pedagogy. It is exciting to see how well it aligns with our philosophy of delivering the curriculum with a project based learning approach.
