Mālō e lelei, Ni Sa Bula, Talofa, Kia ora and welcome. My name is Latai Fa'apoi and this is a blog in which I will share insights experienced through the course of my professional learning journey. I am a Teacher of year 7/8 learners at Stonefields School in Auckland alongside my mentor teacher, Ollie Baker. I am also a member of the 2016 Manaiakalani Digital Teachers Academy (MDTA) cohort.

It's hard to believe that two years ago the awe-inspiring world-class innovating Teachers of Google's ClassOnAir were in the same seat as my colleagues and I. Today we had Matt Goodwin come in and share with us some of the technicalities of recording and sharing his pedagogy for his ClassOnAir episodes. Their courage to lay the design for learning that they have created for their learners for a global audience is the ultimate visible learning experience and fulfils the SHARE piece of the Manaiakalani pedagogy by making their plans available for anyone to use,
giving back to the community by sharing their take on what is effective teaching within their context for their learners. Knowing that we might have the opportunity to do this in a year and a half's time is SCARY but inspiring.
