8 Aboriginal Ways of Learning

Although the curriculum requires Indigenous inclusions, it lacks ways and definitions on how to incorporate these. The 8Ways (8 Aboriginal Ways of Learning, 2013) is a fantastic framework to help guide teachers into how to incorporate and align western and Indigenous pedagogies. It is useful in realising the ways Indigenous people view the world. 8Ways (8 Aboriginal Ways of Learning, 2013) helps to acknowledge these ways in realising how these could be incorporated into teaching and learning, in entering into a culturally responsive and relevant learning environment to form relationships with all involved.

  1. I think you have highlighted a really important point about the gaps in the curriculum. I feel that this framework offers enormous opportunities for teachers that can benefit all students.
