    Demarginalizing knowledge through place-based learning : exploring the educational experience at the lo'i
    ([Honolulu] : [University of Hawaii at Manoa], [December 2010], 2010-12) Wu, Pearl Zuyi
    Papa lo'i kalo, a system of integrated wetland taro patches, are serving as sites of place-based learning for schools and the community. The taro plant and the lo'i inform students about the traditional knowledge of taro farming and create a space in which the power of learning and teaching is most influenced by the community and the place itself. The educational experience at the loʻi raises questions about the normative content of curriculum, control of education, and approaches to pedagogy. Using student reflections and an oral history with a taro farmer, this thesis will explore the loʻi as a critical place that has the potential to reshape students' understanding of Hawaiʻi, its history, and the Native Hawaiian community.

    (Un)confining spaces : reconsidering contemporary educational assumptions through "pedagogy's hinge"
    ([Honolulu] : [University of Hawaii at Manoa], [May 2014], 2014-05) Sojot, Amy N.
    Contemporary educational assumptions that inform current social imaginaries are examined through the theoretical framework offered by Elizabeth Ellsworth's (2005) concept, "pedagogy's hinge". Described as a transitional moment during which the becoming self experiences the generation of her own "knowledge in the making" (Ellsworth, 2005, p. 1), the open space enabled by pedagogy's hinge allows for a multiplicity of experiences to inform the self's pedagogical agency and epistemological considerations. To assist in exploring pedagogy's hinge and its implications for reconsidering contemporary educational assumptions, Nic Nicosia's silver gelatin print, Real Pictures #11, was used as a catalyst to examine the meaning held by an experience with an artwork. Engaging with an aesthetic experience and pedagogy's hinge suggests that acknowledging the complexity of the learning self encourages recognition of multiple, rather than one, ways of approaching knowledge within the contemplation of contemporary educational assumptions.

    Science education and native Hawaiian peoples: a study of the dis/connection between science teaching and being native Hawaiian
    ( 2007-12) Allaire, Franklin S.
    The mainstream science education paradigm which permeates many public and private school systems does not recognize the indigenous knowledge of the Native Hawaiian culture as a viable partner in the cJassroom/laboratory to "traditional" scientific methods. Researchers and scholars argue that many science teachers align themselves to values associated with scientism resuJting in an atmosphere where a Hawaiian science teacher's beliefs and cultural identity are viewed as unscientific and unimportant. This creates a situation where teachers are forced to categorize themselves based on a single identity, in this case the choice between being Hawaiian or a science teacher. This singular identity system creates an atmosphere in which Indigenous science teachers, and in tum their students, must choose to either abandon their culture in favor of the "civilized" methods of science or to become disengaged from science as a whole. This thesis approaches the identity from a different perspective, one in which individuals have plural identities at different times. This theory will be supported by literary works such as Amartya Sen's Identity and Violence and Kwame Appiah's Cosmopolitanism as well as three cases studies involving science teachers of Native Hawaiian ancestry.
