    Mahuika Mahuika, the keeper of fire possesses many traits such as kaitīaki/guardianship, responsible, insightful, long fuse/patient, protector, fierce, social good. These same traits can guide us online. #belikemahuika

    Māui

    Māui possesses qualities like playfulness, innovative, adaptable, growth mindset, risk-taker, curiosity, problem solver, crafty, goal-oriented, active pursuit, bug fixer and collaborator. #belikemāui

    I move in both circles. Mostly like Maui but my role as classroom teacher pulls me into thinking like Mahuika depending on role and responsibility requirements. I need to 'understand' how it all fits like Mahuika before I can 'buy' in to something.

          It depends on the context and the purpose.  Am I acquiring something for myself or to share with others? Am I embedding personal knowledge or transmitting/facilitating? It would be very difficult to be exclusively Maui or Mahuika. Ako ākonga fluid?

            I would probably be more like Maui with some traits from Mahuika.

              When I'm learning, I'm like Maui.

              When I'm teaching I'm like Mahuika!

                I am a mixture - I like to explore and learn new things, but I need time and no distractions.

                  I'm definitely more of a Maui online and have a short fuse and not alot of patience for platforms or digital tools that are slow or take a long time to learn  crying

                    I feel I am also a mixture between Māui and Mahuika. I love being innovative and trying new things (if I have the time) and am patient and responsible.

                      I'm a mixture of both but probably more Mahuika than Maui. I can be curious and enjoy trying new things but I like to have time to think things through.

                        I love the use of Māui and Mahuika in this Pīkau.  I think I am probably a bit of both.  We all want to be risk-takers but oftentimes our roles mean we have to be methodical too.  How about a 'responsible' risk-taker.

                          Kia ora,  I am more like Mahuika most of the time but there are times where I get a bit mischievous, throw caution to the wind (just like Maui) and go for it.  A perfect example being my spur of the moment enrolment in Mind Lab's  PGC in Digital and Collaborative Learning this year.  Glad I'm into learning as I've been in the pit since our class six weeks ago.
