    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'm mostly a Māui style learner. I love to have something to work on, instructions beside me and then give it a go.

          I'm a mixture of both, and it depends on where I am in the learning - at the start of new ideas I can be pretty methodical, but when I get a basic understanding, or I find an interesting connection, I'm more likely to jump around a topic.

            Mixture of both I guess. I like to have a quick look over all the information before I go mine deeper into the content.

              I am definitely more like Mahuika.. I like to do everything in order- step by step.

                      Abit of both. Would like to think I am more like Maui but know I am probably more like Mahuika.

                        I think I am quite a lot like Mahuika. I am quite methodical and a step by step type person. I am quite conservative when it comes to working on digital technologies as I worry about messing something up.

                          I think I am a bit of both. Exploring and trying things out but like to have the back up of the knowledge that comes from reading and thinking.
