3. Support your mahi (Āta whakaaro)

Whakaaro

The resources in this section could be used in your role as an LSC to support teams in:

  • sharing observations and information,
  • checking understanding,
  • exploring the connections between the information gathered.

Some of the links on this page are using tools that have been developed in other parts of the world. When looking at these tools it will be important to think about them from an Aotearoa perspective. What language is used, how are they culturally sustaining, how are whānau and ākonga visible? How might they be used in ways that are mana-enhancing and relevant to our unique contexts?

Data becomes much more powerful when leaders, teachers, and students engage with the data and have “data conversations,” or “data chats.” During these conversations, leaders and teachers identify strengths, areas for growth, goals, and specific actions. For leaders and teachers, these conversations help unpack what the data means and decide what to do about it.  - Curriculum Associates 2019
