Concepts we use to talk about teaching and learning in Aotearoa New Zealand
Like we said at the start of this section, concepts are just ideas. What follows next are a range of ideas from both mainstream education and Te Ao Māori that we use to talk about teaching and learning.
Stand by for a brief introduction to the following:
- Mana atua
- Mana ao tūroa
- Mana whenua
- Mana tangata
- Mana reo
- Tino rangatiratanga
- Kōrero, titiro, and whakarongo
Don’t freak out if any of these words look new to you. The ideas behind the words won’t be. And we’ll explain everything as we go.
