Learning and self organisation: Rautaki Ako
The most important in regards to a students personal learning paths is there Rautaki Ako. This is based on a students passions, needs and future goals. The intention is that students will carefully think about their learning pathway when they leave Ngā Taiātea and all of the students subjects support that pathway.
The basic word document for students to fill in for their year level is on the Takere Whanau page of the school website. By week 6 of term 1, all students should have transferred and extended on the korero regarding themselves and their learning pathway on to the ONENOTE version of their Rautaki Ako..
The ONENOTE programme allows students to add video, web pages, links to their calendar and all sorts of other things to support their learning plan as they share with their whanau and others.
Once students have chosen their subjects they are able to go to the stationary list and purchase the items that they need to support them in their learning.
Ngā Taiātea recommends that whanau go to shops like Warehouse Stationary and other similar shops to purchase their stationary which are always on special in the beginning of the year.
