Innovation in the Outreach programme involves two phases of activity. The first phase is to learn about Manaiakalani as an innovation and apply the principles in the Outreach clusters.
Part of the Manaiakalani innovation is the commitment of the cluster leaders to make that happen. Part of the Outreach innovation is to spread that commitment among Outreach cluster leaders. With that commitment, it is not only possible but highly probable that the principles of innovation grown within Manaiakalani are spread more widely. 

The second phase of innovation will come into play once the initial spread of the seven development tasks and associated principles of engagement is complete, probably after the first two years. This second phase is about the Manaiakalani hub cluster and Outreach clusters becoming more of a united whole innovation. The time will come when the seven development activities are embedded as routine learning and living across all the clusters. When that happens, innovation is about discovering adaptations to the norm that can enhance the agreed pedagogies, practices and environments. This phase of innovation involves a negotiated decision making process among participants to agree about what to retain and what to let go.


The Innovation 

The seven development areas of Manaiakalani are a significant innovation in themselves. Initially clusters and schools should spend time embedding and building a base around this primary innovation. This involves ...
  • Community focus on the innovation and reflection
  • Professional Learning Groups - PLGs 
  • How the Manaiakalani innovation is embedded
  • Key elements of Manaiakalani innovation
Innovations that have developed from Manaiakalani when they are at home in the digital world. The recommendation is that these are not a focus in the first two years of Outreach establishment.
