2019 - Kia ora and welcome to my Manaiakalani Google Class OnAir site.
This is my sixth year teaching in a 1-1 Digital learning environment, and at Pt England School, Auckland, New Zealand.
I teach Year 5 & 6 learners who all have their very own Chromebook as their basic learning tool.
In New Zealand it is common practice to differentiate our teaching into small-group learning based on individual learning needs.
The groups that this site focuses on are considered to have similar learning needs, forming a collaborative learning group.
If you would like to contact me about any of my lessons or activities, please contact me via the links below.
