The purpose of the Talanoa Ako Cycle is to help each school and its parents identify and implement key activities over the course of each school year for working effectively together to better understand and support students' learning and progress over time.
The Talanoa Ako cycle is accompanied by four tools to help schools implement the Cycle. These tools include guides for parents and teachers in preparing for goal setting and reporting meetings, and a tool for schools, to be shared with parents and others, setting out the roles and responsibilities of board of trustees, school leaders, teachers, parents and students within the year-long cycle of talanoa ako.
The Talanoa Ako Cycle itself and accompanying guide tools are appended to the end of the report. More comprehensive information about the Talanoa Ako Cycle and guide tools and the project findings overall can be found in the Phase One and Phase Two reports for this project.
