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

    How do you learn best? Are you more like Mahuika or Māui? Why? Be brave, dive in and share a few sentences about yourself in the comments section below, so we can get to know each and learn from one another -tuakana–teina.

          I am definitely a Maui.  I take risks and enjoy making mistakes.  I learn more this way.

            When I’m in the classroom as a teacher with students I am mostly like Māui - a risk taker and keen to give new learning a go. I am curious about all the new DT that keep appearing and want to evaluate then share what I hope will engage and excite my students. However when I’m in the role of offering PD support to teachers I am more like Mahuika and like to be methodical and patient with adults who perceive DT as new and challenging and just another curriculum area that needs to be integrated into the day.

              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.
