Embracing future-focussed learning

University of Waikato 11 March, 2019


When Taumata School in Tauranga opened its doors for the first time this term, it welcomed a cohort of Years 1-6 pupils who will embark on a future-focussed learning journey within a purpose-built campus. With classrooms designed as flexible and collaborative learning studios, the school advocates the sort of innovative education environment that drew University of Waikato teaching graduates Dan Priest and Sjaan McDivitt to become founding teachers, or ‘learning coaches’.
