Our work with Māori educators and learners
E ngā mana, e ngā reo, e ngā mata ora o te mātauranga matua, nau mai, whakatau mai ki te paetukutuku Māori o Ako Aotearoa. Ko tōna tikanga, he whakawhitiwhiti whakaaro i waenganui i a tātau, he tuku kōrero e pā ana ki ngā mahi Māori a te tari nei, ā, he kete rauemi hoki hei āwhina i a tātau.
Kia hoki tātau ki te whakataukī a ō tātau mātua tīpuna,
“Ko te manu kai i te miro, nōna te ngahere. Ko te manu kai i te mātauranga nōna te ao.”

We are pleased to present our new interactive online flipbook 'Ako, Aro and Whanaungatanga: How to make a difference for your Māori adult learners in literacy and numeracy' which was designed to support tertiary educators who wish to enhance their engagement with Māori learners, and who seek to expand on their teaching and learning practices based on Kaupapa Māori practices.

- A video clip of the powhiri process at the marae with accompanying clarification and activity
- Teaching and learning activities about karakia and ‘Taku ingoa’
- Clarification and an activity for ‘Ako’
- Visual and activities relating to the use of music to enhance the oral and written skills for Māori learners
- A Video clip describing the ‘Cline’ activity as a teaching learning activity from the Learning Progressions Book ‘Teaching adults to read with understanding’.
- Word map activities and templates
- Resources relevant to the National Certificate in Adult Literacy and Numeracy Education qualification.
The He Taunga Waka project aims to improve literacy and numeracy outcomes for adult Māori and Pasifika learners.
This project has three key components; designing a new blended professional development programme, engaging with communities and community groups to raise the awareness of the value of literacy and numeracy, and supporting the development of the Tairāwhiti literacy and numeracy hub.
The project, led by Ako Aotearoa is being undertaken in collaboration Literacy Aotearoa.

New Zealand's top tertiary teaching excellence honour was awarded to Dr Te Taka Keegan, senior lecturer in the Computer Science Department at The University of Waikato.
Presented by the Rt Hon Bill English at a parliamentary dinner, the Prime Minister's Supreme Award acknowledges Dr Keegan’s sustained commitment to teaching and learning over a 30-year career where he has skillfully woven his love for te reo Māori with his love for computers.
Te Taka is still the only person who can teach a computer science paper completely in te reo.
