The Science Learning Hub – Pokapū Akoranga Pūtaiao

26/08/22

The Science Learning Hub – Pokapū Akoranga Pūtaiao links New Zealand scientists with school students, teachers, and community audiences. They are a national project funded by the New Zealand Government to make examples of New Zealand science, technology and engineering more accessible and visible. To do this, they use a range of media to tell the stories of New Zealand research and development. Wrap-around teacher resources demonstrate how these stories can be used as contexts for creating relevant, engaging classroom programmes in science and STEM.

They have over 10,400 resources that showcase cutting-edge science and demonstrate how the stories of science can be used to enrich school teaching and learning, making it more relevant, engaging and meaningful. Below are a few examples of resources that have recently been developed with Otago University for the Aotearoa in Space Exhibition. Many more are available on their website.

Literacy & Communication and Maths Strategy

12/08/22

Te Poutāhū | Curriculum Centre is strengthening our education system to ensure it consistently delivers equity and excellence for our children and young people. That means working towards a system where all ākonga can experience success, secure in their identities, languages, cultures, and values; and where kaiako feel confident and are well-supported in their practice. As part of that process, the Literacy & Communication and Maths Strategy and its accompanying Action Plans have been developed for the early learning and schooling pathway.

The Literacy & Communication and Maths Action Plans identify the changes needed to make the Strategy’s vision a reality over the coming years. The actions have been informed by evidence and developed in collaboration with kaiako, whānau, communities, and iwi, and that collaboration will continue as work on the actions progresses. This includes making sure that the Action Plans align with and advance work already underway to support our ākonga and kaiako, including the refresh of The New Zealand Curriculum, the development of practice and progress tools for Te Whāriki, and changes to strengthen literacy and numeracy in NCEA.
