Learning from lockdown – the voices of parents of Māori and Pasifika students

What can we learn from this period of school closures? Authors of the report School-led learning at home: The voices of parents of Maori and Pasifika students, Dr Melanie Riwai-Couch, Tufulasi Taleni and Ally Bull, will discuss the value of parent voice and some of the key findings of their recent research in an upcoming webinar for teachers.

The panel of speakers will discuss how school-led learning at home is conceptualised and the experiences of Māori and Pasifika families over the period of school closures. They also will consider what we can learn from the past weeks about the value of home-school partnerships and what this means for schools moving forward.

Please join us for this informative and interactive webinar for teachers. As usual, there will be plenty of opportunities to ask questions.
