Learning artisan production of Maori carvings with the help of mobile technologies
This event took place on Tuesday 11 June 2013 at 15:00


This presentation provides an overview of the findings of a small exploratory study that evaluated the effectiveness of mobile learning to supplement the face-to-face teaching and learning of a whakairo (Māori carving) three-day course for secondary school age Māori. The study found that in relation to participant learning, the use of mlearning to supplement the learning experience appeared to improve the knowledge transfer or ability to recall key elements relevant to the course for the experimental group. This study formed the starting point of my PhD research in the area of mlearning for secondary school age students within tikanga Māori learning environments. It is anticipated that the research will contribute to a tiknga-based framework, shaping the future of learning in Aotearoa.
