Exploring Global Citizenship through Te Ao Māori

NZAEE Webinar June 2024

Guest Speaker: Alicia Poroa, Aotearoa Social Studies Educators' Network (ASSEN)

In this recorded webinar we take a look at Global Citizenship from a Te Ao Māori perspective. Alicia Poroa shares how these qualities can be cultivated within your classroom learning programs for and with the environment, making touchpoints with climate education, social justice and social action from a Te Ao Māori perspective.

In the second part of her presentation Alicia unpacks Te Mātaiaho - the refreshed New Zealand Curriculum, using the Understand, Know and Do model within Te Ao Tangata Social Sciences, including examples and links to resources produced by ASSEN.

Ko Alicia Poroa tāku ingoa.

Ko te mātanga o te ao tangata ahau.

I have been a transformational indigenous educator for 25 years teaching in Aotearoa and internationally.  My experiences in education span across English,  Māori medium and special character settings embedding culturally sustaining pedagogy that is mana enhancing for mokopuna and whānau. Cultivating spaces for learning that enrich, enact and enable rangatiratanga is a central pou in my practice.
