The final set of booklets - Kei Tua o te Pae

Now that we have the final set of the booklets we are as a team trying to get our heads around what the resource says as a whole.

The booklets are not yet available online at the MOE website as PDFs although the other books are.

New Zealand Licensed ECE centres are entitled to three sets from Learning Media for each license.

Printed copies of Kei Tua o te Pae and other Ministry of Education publications can be ordered from:
Ministry of Education Customer Services
Phone 0800 660 662
Fax 0800 660 663

Book 16 is the introduction to the new set - Symbol Systems and Technologies for Meaning Making.

This book reminds us of/introduces three lenses for analysing narrative assessments;

- a lens focused on assessment practices
- a Te Whaariki Lens
- A lens focused on the symbol systems and technologies for making meaning - literacy, mathematics, the arts, ICT ( these are discussed but others could be included such as scientific literacy)

An analysis of a learning story using the lens of assessment practices might examine a range of concepts around assessment as discussed in books 1-9. PDFs of these exemplars are available on the MOE website
