    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 a combination of both Maui and Mahuika. I like taking the risk, I am curious and I have a growth mindset.

          I am mostly fall in the Maui mindset but there are moments of Mahuika in me where i like to sit back and really think in depth and problem solve.

            I am a combination of both. Sometimes I start out as one and move to another as I progress. It also depends on the task.

              I can be a lot like Maui when I'm first introduced to an app or website. I like to play and see what I can and can't do. After that I'm a bit like Mahuika in that I like to make sure I'm not missing anything important so that I can deliver information thoroughly.

                I think I am more like a Maui. I start out guns blazing and ready to try new things. I am curious and will go all in. I think I need a bit more Mahuika - patience and spend more time really thinking and reflecting on things smiley

                  I am probably a combination of both, I start out like Mahuika, a little more reserved and watchful but once I experience some success I become more like Maui.

                    I like to see the whole picture then break it down into parts. So I guess I am like Mahuika.

                      I am very observant and patient in my learning just like Mahuika. I become a Maui when the learning develops into something I am truly passionate about.

                        I am a mixture of both of these.  I love learning new things and will give anything a go, I have patience and working with others collaboratively.

                          I am more like Mahuika, would like to work towards some of Maui's attributes
