Whakatipuranga Arapiki Ako


Whakatipuranga Arapiki Ako was launched at the Adult Literacy and Numeracy symposium on 07 July 2011. This report concludes the sector consultation hui held in 2010 and synthesises key messages and themes from stakeholders represented at each hui.

This beautifully illustrated report captures Āhuatanga Māori or a Māori worldview of the definitions associated with the terminology Māori Literacy or Literacy for Māori. This report can now be used to inform embedded literacy and numeracy projects in the sector, and complement and inform qualifications such as the National Certificate in Adult Literacy and Numeracy Education.

Engaging Māori Learners: an introductory resource for adult literacy and numeracy educators

Tēnei te mihi nui ki a koutou katoa, ngā kaiako me ngā kaimanaaki e mahi ana i roto i te āhuatanga o Te Arapiki Ako

The Tertiary Education Commission has recently produced a DVD resource to accompany the Learning Progressions for Adult Literacy and Numeracy.

The DVD entitled “Knowing your learner - Engaging Māori learners: an introductory resource for adult literacy and numeracy educators” is a teaching tool designed for educators working in the tertiary sector to help them better understand Mātauranga Māori and models of practice that may assist with engaging Māori learners.

Some of the holistic teaching and learning practices common to the Māori culture are profiled in this resource. Models such as Te Whare Tapa Whā Durie (1998), Tuakana Teina, Ako and Pōwhiri Poutama are key models that are explored.

The discussion in the DVD provides insights and ideas that educators, tutors and teams can use to inform and enhance their teaching programmes and practices.

We are currently unable to provide free copies of the Engaging Maori Learners DVD.

We encourage you to view the chapters here.
