Gather information to guide hybrid approaches

Gathering initial and ongoing information and feedback to guide planning and action.

Partner with whānau

Partner with whānau

Build and maintain effective relationships with whānau to sustain hybrid learning approaches.

Some discussion points for whānau conversations:

  • The level of ākonga independence when learning remotely or from home. This will vary by age as well as other factors.
  • The people or community who support ākonga when learning remotely.
  • The resources available in the home or community, such as spaces, devices, wifi, books and learning materials.
  • Cultural expectations and protocols.
  • Preferred forms of communication, both to and from whānau.
  • How to track communications.

Identify the support needed

Work with students, whānau and community to identify available resources and the right supports for learners.

Monitor impacts on student learning

Monitor impacts on student learning

Understand and respond to the impact of working at home compared to working at school for different learners.

It pays to adjust your expectations. Some students will do better at home then they did at school. Others will produce less than they did at school. Some reasons for this include fewer distractions, reduced availability of support from teachers and more difficulty accessing teacher aides.
