Transcript of My Aboriginal Education Journey

Lauren Hunter My Aboriginal Education Journey Introduction My identity is shaped by family, schooling, university and teaching experiences. University experiences EDUC 2049 - Youth culture and education
EDUC 6515 - Diversity in education
EDUC 4701 - Indigenous education
EDUC 6555 - Social Education FOGs Part of EDUC 2049; 10 days mentoring
students in a 'disadvantaged' school.

It was a learning experience for me,
with both positive and negative
aspects.. Teaching These understandings and experiences will inform my teaching of all students. Ladson-Billings' 'Just what is critical race theory...?' explains stories share different realities and empower marginalized peoples. Reflection My blog Little success with goals.

Hard to build a rapport.

I had little power to differentiate the class work to help the student.

Many classes were a frustrating and stressful experience for teachers and some students. Negatives Professional development.

Opened my eyes - challenged my ideas

Made me ask 'why?' and 'what can we as teachers do to engage these students?'

Critically evaluated other teacher's strategies. Positives References Nakata, M. (2007). The cultural interface. The Australian Journal of Indigenous Education, 36S, 7-14.

The most important concept
I have learned in this course is... I've found storytelling to be an engaging and effective way to learn about Indigenous cultures. Philosophy of schooling Values Attitudes Culture Knowledge and understandings Beliefs Social practices The value of storytelling. Caucasian middle-class Australian upbringing (married parents, 2 children). Attended an Anglican college for most of schooling. Limited experience of different cultures. Nakata's cultural interface: Ways of being; knowing and doing. Melbourne Declaration (2008):
- ensure that schools build on local
cultural knowledge and experience
of Indigenous students as a
foundation for learning, and work in
partnership with local communities;
- ensure that schooling contributes
to a socially cohesive society that
respects and appreciates cultural,
social and religious diversity. Australian Curriculum Artist Bronwyn Bancroft:
'This painting represents pathways to greater learning. The result of persistence is the bloom, growth through learning.'
'Education for Indigenous people is imperative to our development and confidence. It allows us to participate with equity in an often inequitable society.’
