Musicnet Summary to 19 Oct 2020


Kia ora tātou


Former Musicnet moderator Shane Morrow began a thread on curriculum review, inspired by the recent interview with Anita Collins, neuro-science educator. This lead into a discussion of what the NCEA review could look like. It would be great to get some more conversation going about what you think, and how you see new standards working in your classroom.
