Podcast – Derek Wenmoth

NPDLConnect Podcast series

Derek Wenmoth is the Director of eLearning for Core Education Ltd, a not for profit referential educational research and development organization in NZ.  Derek, and CORE, focus on transforming education in NZ by enabling modern learning. Derek is also Cluster Lead for New Pedagogies for Deep Learning, and has vast experience as a teacher and principal at the primary and secondary level in New Zealand.

Derek is regarded as one of New Zealand education’s foremost future-focused thinkers, and is regularly asked to consult with policy makers and government agencies regarding the future directions of New Zealand educational policy and practice.

In this Podcast Derek reflects on teacher agency, the historical legacy that holds us back from changing educational practice and the need to act with what he terms an ´8 wire mentality’.  It’s an interesting conversation about how and what should be improved to make schools relevant in the 21st century, without losing the essence of every community’s culture and identity.
