Connecting-Tuhi Mai Tuhi Atu

This term has meant some changes for the Tuhi Mai Tuhi Atu program. While the focus remains on connecting children using blog commenting with schools across the country this term the wonderful Fiona Grant has add a professional learning element that connects us at teachers through a Google Meet.

These meeting have been incredible. They are an opportunity to see how teachers around the country are going with distance learning and share ideas and success stories.

Last week the meeting was run as a SLAM this meant that people had 1 minute to share and idea to help others with their blogging, class site or teacher workflow.

It was such great fun and we all learnt some great tips. You can check out the slide and recorded Google Meet here.


  1. Kia ora Clarelle, thank you for keeping us up to date with the responsive way in which Manaiakalani teachers are recreating and tailoring practice for distance learning. You are all an inspiration! I was wondering whether you could link us to the two resources you have screen-grabbed above (if they have been made available to a wider audience)? I would be most interested in the Top Tips teachers shared. If not perhaps you could summerise in your next professional blog post? Thanks again and stay well in your bubble! Naomi

    1. Hi Naomi, Thank you for your comment. Yes it has been such a great addition to my week hearing from others. I have linked the word here in the blog post and have now also linked the bottom imagine. Both images are from the same site. You so welcome to see the slide and recorded meeting of what the teachers had to share. I hope you are keeping happy and safe in your bubble.

  2. Thank you Clarelle, have really valued the genrosity of time and practice from so many in our learning communities from across Aotearoa.
    Thinking back to our cluster staff meeting last year "Connected Learners Share". This time as amplified opportunities to connect and share and so wonderful to see the relentless focus on the positive for the benefit of all.
