Manaiakalani 2019 - KPMG - Last Day

The task given to us was to celebrate and present a screencast of our journey on the MIT 2019 programme.

Here is the presentation and the first attempt of my rewarding and challenging experience.

Screencast of Presentation

Manaiakalani 2019 - KPMG - Last Day

What a sad day today!

The last of our getting together.

The morning began by connecting and reflecting.

Prior to the session, I was able to reflect and answer the following questions.

  1. Where have you got to
  2. How has your project impacted on the School, Cluster, and Manaiakalani
  3. Would you do the same thing again with the superpower of hindsight?
  4. What has worked well in 2019?
I have prepared a slide presentation answering these questions and I have also been able to celebrate and showcase the journey and experience of being involved in the MIT journey in 2019.

Here is the presentation. I will shortly create and share a screencast of the presentation

Manaiakalani: Toolkit Completed

Following our last KPMG session, I have made the final changes to the toolkit.

I have also started my slide presentation and beginning to put all the pieces together for the big event in October.

The journey and experience has been like the movie 'Cool Runnings' there have been the starts, crashes and more importantly the support and encouragement from a number of people from Manaiakalani and Wesley Primary School.

Finally, the dragon has been slayed and the toolkit has been completed. Financial Enterprise

Manaiakalani: Wananga

Following our last KPMG session, we were advised of the Wananga in October. The 7-minute presentation with '20 images for 20 seconds' started to get me thinking and preparing for the Wananga

Things to consider in the presentation are:
  • What: what was the problem?
  • Who was it a problem for?
  • What did you do in the process you went through
  • How did you come up with the design you ultimately took to creation and implementation
  • What did you come up with finally?
  • How does it work?
  • How successfully is it meeting your original problem?
As I begin to draft and plan my presentation, I start to see and acknowledge the journey I started at the beginning of the year.

I continue to revert back to the following questions at the beginning of the MIT program.

  1. Is the tool something that could NOT have been done with digital technologies?
  2. Is the Innovation designed to accelerate our priority learners' achievement outcomes?
  3. Does my inquiry support the cluster kaupapa goals?
As I redefine my tool and put the presentation together I strongly believe I am able to answer these questions. The finish line is near and the I am able to 'sly the dragon'.

Manaiakalani Inquiry: KPMG

On Monday the 12th August we had our third collaborative meeting at the KPMG Office in Auckland.

What a GREAT and AMAZING day!

Prior to the meeting, we received an email with the following questions for us to ponder and consider when making our sales pitch.

They were:

  • What is the tool/concept/idea? 
  • How have you tested it? What did the testers think?
  • Why would we want to use it?
  • What is it able to do?
  • How has it evolved and what changes have you had to make? How and why?
  • What do the learners think of it?
  • Is it making a difference or will it make a difference? How do you know?
  • What has driven you in the development?
  • How is it different from other similar tools?
  • What does your team (us) think?
The presentation was like a 'dragon's den' with Dorothy, Anne and the MIT participants probing, poking and posing questions about the tool.

The opportunity to participate in this environment allowed me to go away and make further adjustments and refinement to the tool. I can see the finish line!
