Associate Professor Jenny Poskitt, NZAI President, is passionate about using assessment for learning with students, teachers, senior leaders, and whānau. Dr Beverley Booth is Principal of Devonport Primary. She has recently been awarded her PhD in assessment capability.
Both presenters believe that central to how we know ākonga are learning is respectful, reciprocal conversations (kōrero). Through this, mutually beneficial relationships (whanaungatanga) develop in which learners, whānau and educators share understanding about what matters, how to learn and what achievement looks and feels like. This keynote seeks to inform and inspire through sharing the journey of national and local school learning.
