Your Guide to Kaʻaikuahiwi
a new edge in professional learning
Kaʻaikuahiwi, meaning “mountain food,” will nurture and nourish the professional growth of our K-12 kumu.
A new addition to the Nāwaiao Educator Growth and Impact System, this innovative platform offers self-paced, job-embedded, asynchronous and blended learning opportunities specifically designed so that educators can experience the promise and potential of ‘Ōiwi Edge learning and teaching for E Ola! with their haumāna.
Through the integration of Kaʻaikuahiwi within Nāwaiao, we envision a new edge in professional learning for K-12 educators that equips kumu to thrive in their roles as they embrace new approaches and co-create impactful learning experiences with haumāna.
Kaʻaikuahiwi micro-courses are:
To be completed in 12-20 hours (per micro-course)
