    This involves taking what we’ve learned and considering what we will do with the information and exploring alternatives. It is an ideal way to engage in cross-curricular learning. There is real potential to create opportunities for students to develop interviewing skills and co-operative skills, determine budgets, be creative and innovative, create technical plans and take action to become agents of change.

    Effective planning is a vital part of the action process. Consider whether there are established procedures or protocols you can use to add robustness and usefulness to any data collected.


    Questions to consider

    • Who uses or manages the area/situation/process that we’d like to address?
    • Who do we need to involve?
    • Who do we need to consult before making decisions?
    • Are there tikanga or special customary traditions we need to follow?
    • What is our timeframe?
    • Is this a one-off action or do we need to plan for ongoing/future action?
    • Does the weather or the season influence when we should carry out our project?
    • What skills will we need?
    • What processes, methodologies or protocols do we need to follow to ensure that our actions provide quality data?
    • Who are the people who can help us with the processes or protocols?
    • How will we store or analyse any data we collect?
    • Will the project require funding or other resources?
    • How can we obtain funding/resources?
    • How will our actions lead to the change we are seeking?
