Kia ora and welcome to my Manaiakalani Google Class OnAir site. This is my third year teaching in a 1-1 Digital learning environment, and at Tamaki Primary School in 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.
