Hi. Thanks for visiting Ease Education. I am a teacher in a New Zealand primary school.
This site is focussed on exploring and reflecting on teaching practices that promote effective child-centred learning. It is based on 1. personal reflections of my own teaching experience in the New Zealand education system, 2. my personal research of child-centred learning, and 3. lots of conversations with lots of people.
This site is an invitation to talk and share. And to be honest, there is nothing new here. The idea of children needing to be at the centre of their learning already has many committed proponents in New Zealand and other parts of the world.
Ease is a ‘reset’ for educators working within the system to help them reprioritise child-centered learning. Ease offers educators a way to reposition their teaching, while staying within the system. Ease gives parents of school children an alternative way of measuring the success of their children, while staying within the system.
You can be reassured that the purpose of Ease, in the words of Ross Ashcroft, is to “inform, illuminate and inspire”. All content posted on Ease will only relate specifically to that purpose. All content will be identity free. You will not find any reference to individuals past or present.
The opinions expressed on this site are just that; opinions. My own opinions. Expressed in a respectful way.
Your comments and feedback are welcome; as long as they remain respectful of the culture of this site, as outlined above.
