    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.

          I am a mixture of both. I love trying new thing but really like to have the background knowledge as well.

            I think I have a bit of both.  i like to learn by playing round but also like to have a little knowledge first.

              Keen to further my learning through this platform.  I am more like a Maui.

                My learning style is probably a bit of both - Mahuika and Maui

                  Definitely a Maui too! Exploring and learning as I go.

                    I think I am more of a Maui, I like to learn through play and experimenting.

                      I'm definitely more of a Mahuika. I totally admire my Maui students though and think I need a bit more risk-taking in my teaching practice.

                        I am more Mahuika than Maui. I would like to think I could be more like Maui.

                          I think both are as important as each other- the credentials both Mahuika and Maui complement each other and I believe that as a teacher in a diverse learning environment- I need both to allow me to be resilient and confident.
