The researchers draw from their discoveries as members of a recent international project that set out to better understand the social and emotional event-of-becoming that took place for tamariki, whānau and kaiako during movements into, between and across diverse educational settings. They share their insights concerning ‘what works’ and why, in consideration of local, bicultural and intercultural contemporary perspectives that have been generated out of the International Study of Social and Emotional Experiences in Early Transitions (ISSEET).
