About this blog

Nau mai, haere mai ki ta tātou whārangi tukutuku – welcome to our blog!

The members of the New Zealand Association for Research in Education conduct research into a range of educational topics and contribute to a range of educational projects. This blog is a forum for us to disseminate our work and share our views about educational topics in Aotearoa New Zealand.

We have chosen the name Ipu Kererū for our blog. Directly translated as ‘pigeon carrier’, the term Ipu Kererū can mean both a carrier of news and a repository of treasured and preserved knowledge. We trust that this blog will both convey news and hold knowledge for the education and educational research communities in Aotearoa New Zealand.

We hope that this blog will interest teachers, parents / whānau, school leaders, policy makers, and other researchers in Aotearoa New Zealand and around the world. We invite you to share your feedback by responding to our posts or joining the conversation on our Facebook page.

Our blog is now being tracked by Altmetric, a service that measures online engagement with research outputs. Learn more about altmetrics here.

Please note that the views expressed in this blog are not necessarily the official views of the New Zealand Association for Research in Education or of the institutions in which our contributors work.
