As we all know, ongoing professional learning is vital. The MOE were able to announce that $4 million has been budgeted for professional learning and development programme to support teachers, educators and kaiako across the early learning sector to engage with the updated curriculum. See https://education.govt.nz/early-childhood/teaching-and-learning/ece-curriculum/te-whariki/
Technology enables access in ways unheard of 21 years ago with reference to live-streamed sessions and use of websites. It was therefore unsurprising perhaps that the PLD contracts are led by the fabulous CORE-Education team who have led the way in this domain.
The revision team began work alongside revising the curriculum document on resources that are included now on: http://tewhariki.tki.org.nz/en/weaving-te-whariki I will be excited to see what is selected for development of resources on this site and how these relate to the learning outcomes. Keep up-to-date by checking for new material on: http://tewhariki.tki.org.nz/en/teaching-strategies-and-resources/
If you participate in any PLD sessions of any kind, let me know what you engage with around working theories 😉
