    In this recorded professional learning session Greta Dromgool invites guest speaker Associate Professor Hēmi Whaanga to discuss mātauranga Māori and to share his perspectives and experiences.

    Hēmi lectures in mātauranga and science at the University of Waikato and in this webinar he unpacks some key ideas teachers need to be thinking about when planning to incorporate ideas such as Matariki, Māori astronomy and navigation.

    So fascinating….. I have scribbled notes and links everywhere! Ka Rawe!

    Nature of science

    The Nature of Science Strand Understanding Science asks us to “Learn about science as a knowledge system: the features of scientific knowledge and the processes by which it is developed; and learn about the ways in which the work of scientists interacts with society.” Gaining an understanding of mātauranga Māori is an important way for students to see themselves in science and to develop an understanding of science as one way of knowing about the world. See our article The ‘Understanding about science’ strand for more information.
