DEAF YOUTH HUI VIDEOS

20-May-2015

New Zealand’s Deaf youth have unique learning experiences that offer valuable insights for all involved in their education.

That’s why in August last year, the Ministry of Education bought together Deaf youth aged 12 years and up from all over New Zealand for a National Deaf Youth Hui.

Held in Auckland, the hui created a supportive environment in which the attendees could share what works for them in education and learning, while providing advice for and connecting with their Deaf peers.

One of its key aims was to look at how Deaf students, schools and the Ministry could better work together to make education a more positive experience for everyone. The Ministry has since used the insights gained to inform its New Zealand Sign Language (NZSL) project work which includes the NZSL@School initiative.
