Building bridges: Developing an ECE presence in Kāhui Ako
Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world. (Nelson Mandela, 2003)
Kāhui Ako provide kaiako with opportunities to collaborate with other professionals and to learn about and collaboratively address the educational challenges reflected in the community. (Ministry of Education, 2017)
These two quotes exemplify my thoughts about working within a Kahui Ako (Community of learning). What a wonderful and interesting perspective: to work collaboratively with other professionals for the benefit of learners within one’s community. It sounded ideal to me. In this paper I will talk about some of my experiences of joining a Kahui Ako.
