The Contributive Curriculum

Guest speaker Joanne McEachen

27th May 5.30pm- 7pm in the Ponsonby Primary School Hall

Free to members. Koha for non- members

5.30pm-6.00pm refreshment time to connect and socialise with educational leaders followed by 1 hour with Joanne who is recently returned to NZ.

The Auckland NZEALS branch is delighted to be hosting Joanne McEachen contributing to our theme this year - “Being the Leader I need”. The Contributive Curriculum, a powerful tool for prioritising wellbeing in kura, schools, early learning services, and kōhanga reo.

Built around the four outcomes of contributive learning:-

  • self-understanding,
  • connection,
  • knowledge, and
  • competency.

The curriculum supports learners, teachers, and whānau to learn about themselves, form meaningful connections, better access the national curricula, and, through the process of learning, contribute to the world in life-changing ways.

The Contributive Curricula are being used to underpin Ministry of Education’s country-wide Curriculum Leads initiative, which places ākonga, kaiako, whānau, and community wellbeing at the centre of educational policy and practice.
This free seminar aims to provide you as leaders ways to consider learners and leadership.

Joanne is the Founder and CEO of The Learner First. A leading voice in the global education community, she has published multiple books on teaching, learning, and system change, is an Edmund Hillary Fellow, a Salzburg Global Seminar Fellow, serves as a founding Executive of Karanga: The Global Alliance for Social Emotional Learning and Life Skills, and co-founded New Pedagogies for Deep Learning (NPDL). Joanne has also recently been awarded one of the ‘Top Ten Most Influential Woman in Technology’ for 2021 by Analytics Insight.
