PLD Facilitator

Daisy Macgregor

Local curriculum, Digital fluency, Assessment for learning

As an educator, my aim is to support and inspire teachers and leaders who are open to collaboration, creativity, critical thinking and communication. By combining these four elements, they will be able to inspire successful life-long learners who are resilient, reflective and responsive to the ever-changing world around them.

I believe that teaching and learning should be fun and enjoyable for all involved, and look to create frequent opportunities to celebrate progress and success.

As an experienced researcher, curator and professional historian, I am fascinated by historical facts and their significance in shaping local context.

Excited by sharing knowledge and teaching people how to research their own community histories, I work intentionally and respectfully to challenge assumptions where necessary, and help schools discover their truth.

Digital fluency, Te Reo Māori me ona Tikanga, Māori Communities, Hangarau Matihiko / Digital technologies curriculum

Papaki tū ana ngā tai ki Mauao. I whakanukunukuhia, i whakanekenekehia, i whiua reretia e Hotu a Wahinerua ki te wai, ki tai wiwī, ki tai wawā, ki tai papaki onepū, ki te whai ao, ki te ao mārama!

Ko te reo, me taku ahurea te tūāpapa o taku katoa, koia pū te take e herea katoa nei aku mahi ki ēnei āhuatanga ōku. Ko Te Reo Māori me te Ao Hangarau aku kaupapa matua, ā, ko tāku e whai ai, kia tutuki katoa a mātou ākonga ki ngā tiketiketanga e whanake ai te whakaaro nui me te auahatanga, i roto tonu i te ao.

With my language and culture being my foundation, and drive in everything I do, it has become an integral part of my work, and is implemented in the learning and development I facilitate in schools. Specialising in Digital Fluency and Te Reo Māori me ōna Tikanga, my focus is ensuring innovative digital learning that contributes to higher thinking and creativity, with a Māori worldview.

Leadership coaching, Inquiry into practice, Leadership appraisal

My coaching, leadership learning and extensive facilitation experience embraces a holistic view of educational leadership.

Outcomes of my work, whether it be through appraisals or individual/collective learning development, include leaders demonstrating and appreciating broadened, deeper reflection, and changing their thinking, behaviour and practice related to ākonga outcomes.

Knowing that leadership and leadership learning is all about change, my strengths based approach to leadership or group development enhances the quality of learning experiences, enables leader agency to contribute to performance improvement and creates sustainable, transferable change.
