Kia ora and welcome to my Manaiakalani Google Class OnAir site. I teach Year 4 & 5 learners at Pt England School, Auckland, New Zealand. My learners are 8-9 years old, and all have their own Google Chromebooks as their basic learning tool. In New Zealand it is common practice to differentiate our teaching into small-group learning based on individual learning needs. The group this site focuses on are considered to have similar learning needs, forming a collaborative learning group.
