Week 17

Research, policy and practice are the 3 key areas of education and they are often not linked

What is research - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zddSbh04sO4
  • Depends what you are doing, no simple answer for what is research it is a complex process that changes depending on what you are researching
  • What is education research?
  • many different ways
  • Research questions
  • E.g.
  • E.g.

How research can support teachers - keeps us current, supports our other evidence we have in schools (student data, own expertise etc…)


My area that I am going to look into is in a self-directed curriculum how can you ensure the same amount of learning occurs and everything still gets covered. Or look at this through an inquiry learning context rather than in the whole curriculum. These are my first thoughts but they may change as I start reading about my topic.

Principles of Kaupapa Maori Research are:
  • Tino Rangatiratanga - The Principle of Self-determination
  • Taonga Tuku Iho - The Principle of Cultural Aspiration
  • Ako Māori - The Principle of Culturally Preferred Pedagogy
  • Kia piki ake i ngā raruraru o te kainga - The Principle of Socio-Economic Mediation
  • Whānau - The Principle of Extended Family Structure
  • Kaupapa - The Principle of Collective Philosophy
  • Te Tiriti o Waitangi - The Principle of the Treaty of Waitangi
  • Ata - The Principle of Growing Respectful Relationships
These ones relate the most because...
  • Tino Rangatiratanga - this is important as I am going to look at the children being in charge of their learning which is allowing them to have control which links closely to this element
  • Whanau - everyone involved to help increase motivation and involvement in the children’s learning
