About the He Tohu Tāmaki learning experience

Recent teacher feedback

Here is some feedback from teachers whose classes experienced the 1840 Treaty Time Machine and Voyager Nation programmes:

Students were highly engaged including the teachers. Students were involved in the storytelling and the short rotation sessions were hands on and engaging.

Students understood the pathway to the Treaty better. Display of photos in chronological order helped with understanding.

In the time we had allocated, the educator touched on so many issues and ideas, which will provide us with ample material for further studies. It was perfect.
