Te Aho Ngārahu: Te Atiawa Digital resources launched.
Wednesday last week, Te Atiawa was invited to attend the Te Aho Ngārahu Resource launch evening at Wintec, Hamilton. Te Aho Ngārahu (Māori Medium Local Curriculum Resources) is a Ministry of Education Māori Resource development initiative to produce local stories in a digital platform.
Hosted by the manager of TupuOra Education and Development Ltd, Kingi Kiriona and his team, the launch celebrated the completion of 25 new Māori education resources narrated by Iwi and developed by digital developers from throughout the country.
This hui was attended by all story writers, whānau and iwi members, resources developers, Ministry officials as well as key education and reo Māori stakeholders including kaiako, teachers and principals.
Three digital resources were developed by Te Atiawa suitable for ages 8-11 years of age which will soon be available to be accessed on-line by the iwi, hapū, whānau, and the wider community of learning primary schools including reo Māori classes, immersion/rūmaki, kura kaupapa and wharekura.
More information will follow when the apps are available to be downloaded.
