“Refreshing, awakening and a stepping stone into what is possible.”

Papakura Intermediate Assistant Principal, Oriana Hansell-Pune

Papakura Intermediate Assistant Principal, Oriana Hansell-Pune described her journey with us as: “Refreshing, awakening and a stepping stone into what is possible without barrier or fear.”

Oriana recognised an opportunity to refresh her practise through The Mind Lab. In particular, she was interested in encouraging enquiry, collaboration, and exploration into a more contemporary skillset.  

“I think those are the key drivers for where education becomes more exciting for both teachers and learners.”

The outcome from graduating in Digital and Collaborative Learning has come as a complete surprise.

“When starting the programme I never would have thought I would be teaching robotics and coding.”

The Mind Lab training instilled confidence to take on new challenges within her teaching practice.

Now her classroom is taught differently. Oriana provides a platform for students to utilise resources and independently plan. Her class is self-motivated, engaged and eager to succeed on their education journey.
