    Hi All

    I think I more a Maui but like to think that I am sometimes like Mahuika. I learn best by making mistakes and learning through these.

          I am a mixture of both as a result of having different roles. I am more Maui by nature though.

            I feel that I can be both depending on what the context or disciplines are but in this particular journey, I think I am definitely a Maui. I am excited by the new opportunities that the Digital Technologies bring.

              Is there a link to the animation for this? I have seen it at a few events but can't find it online. Think it would be great to show at a school PD session.

                I am a mixture of both Māui and Mahuika depending upon the situation I am placed in. At times I like to have a good tutu and other times I am methodical in my approach to do things. The type of environment that I work in I do need to be flexible and occasionally have to go with the flow.

                  Probably more like Mahuika in my personal approach to learning, but like to use resources of Maui when working with people.

                    I believe I am a bit of both. I like to take calculated risks.

                      I believe I am a bit of both that I do and can take risks but within reason if I make mistakes I can reflect and then try to find ways of learning from these mistakes and move more in a positive way.

                        I feel like I am a bit of both. I enjoy taking risks as I know there will be something to learn from if I make a mistake but I feel most comfortable when I know what is expected of me. I also like to think I have a lot of patience...even when it is tested! Being adaptable is important to me as well!

                          I am mostly like Maui but also insightful like Mahuika! I learn best by doing so am always keen to get stuck into something new!
