Maori Language app:
Anne Sturgess shared a great resource on the Gifted and Talented forum last week: an app to support your use of Te Reo Māori: http://www.vodafone.co.nz/apps-services/hika/. You can quickly and easily translate English into Māori on your iPhone or Android mobile. You can also test what you’ve learnt in the ‘Self Test’ area and learn fun and interesting facts about Māori language and culture. Tau kē! (Awesome!)
This project uncovers and documents the teaching strategies at Whitireia New Zealand which have been successful with Māori, Pacific and youth learners. It includes a full report and a resource booklet which will be useful for any tertiary teacher.
