    Public discussion Created by Tessa Gray

    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.

        Probably more Maui but Mahuika features :)

          Kia ora, definitely a good mixture of both!

            I think I am a bit like both depending on where my own understanding is at.  I like to have a cursory explore/read over then delve into more depth later.

              I think I'm naturally more like Mahuika in that I'm patient, thoughtful, etc, but I'm challenging myself to be more of a risk-taker like Maui: just jump in and give the scary stuff a go!

                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.

                        Both and am very eager to increase my knowledge in this area

                          I am a mixture of both.
