Aʻo Kumu Pathways

Education continues to evolve and we’d like to invite you to join us in this wave of change. Our A‘o Kumu courses provide educators with tools and skills to seamlessly integrate culture-based education (CBE) with 21st century skills and relevant standards, such as the Common Core State Standards (CCSS).

The courses are focused with rigor that develops your pedagogical practices to strategically impact student engagement, creativity, and performance. Flexible learning opportunities allow you to customize your learning pathway.

Educators are able to earn professional development credits, and course credits toward a certificate or degree program through our collaboration with the University of Hawai‘i Learning Design and Technology Department.

What Learners Can Expect

  • Intense eight week courses
  • Two to three course contact hours per week
  • Practice using many different educational technology tools and resources

What Skills You Build

  • Integrating culture-based education (CBE) & 21st century skills seamlessly into your lessons
  • Modeling digital citizenship through Hawaiian values and themes to meet learning objectives
  • Synchronous and Asynchronous collaboration to develop a professional learning community (PLC)

What You Leave With

  • E-portfolio that you can continue to use and develop
  • Practical lesson plans that integrate CBE & 21st century skills
  • Your own Personal Learning Network (PLN) and Professional Learning Community (PLC)

All participants in our program are required to take two foundational courses: Culture-Based Education & 21st Century Skills Introduction (Foundation I), and Culture-Based Education & 21st Century Skills In-Depth Application (Foundation II).  After completion of the foundation courses, you have the option to proceed as follows:

  • Non-certification Pathway—If you are NOT seeking one of our certificates, you can take as many of our topic-focused courses as you would like to take.
  • Blended or Online Pathway for Kamehameha Schools Certificate—If you ARE seeking a certificate, you must also take the Blended and Online Learning course. From there, you will be able to take as many of our topic-focused courses as you would like, but you will be required to take at least three. In addition, completion of a practicum is required to receive the certificate.

The topic-focused courses are electives that will focus on specific topics relating to 21st century skills and Hawaiian culture-based education (CBE). They are designed to be flexible enough for whatever pathway you choose, providing activities for differentiated learning.
