Rakaikahuroa (marketing) creative planning lead Chantalle Ngapo with the new Pūrārangi Māori (Māori alphabet) app.

 

Kua whakarewaina e Te Wānanga o Aotearoa tētahi pūmanawa tautono hou, ka mutu e whakahaerehia ana tētahi whakataetae ā-mōtu ki ngā kura neke atu i te 550 hei whakanui i te Wiki o Te Reo.

E taea ana te pūmanawa tautono Pūrārangi Māori, e whakatauira ana me pēwhea te whakahua tika i ngā pū Māori, te tāuta kore utu mai i te toa Apple.                                     

E kīia ana e Chantalle Ngapo, te Kaiwhamahere  Auaha Matua o Rākaikahuroa ki TWoA, he koha tēnei mai nā te wānanga hei whakatairanga i te reo Māori me te Wiki o Te Reo.                             

I mahi ngātahi a Akoranga me Rākaikahuroa hei waihanga i te pūmanawa tautono nei.

 

“Ko te pai o tēnei momo hangarau he whakatipu i ngā pūkenga me te māia ki te reo,” hei tāna. 

 

Kei te whakahaere hoki te wānanga i tētahi wero auaha ki ngā kura puta noa i te motu.

 

He kōkiritanga ā-tau, kei te tau tuawaru īnāianei, e whakatenatena ana i ngā tamariki kura ki te waihanga i ngā  pukapuka reo Māori, ka mutu, ka mutu ko ētahi ka tāngia e te wānanga.

Tirohia te pūmanawa tautono Pūrārangi Māori ki tēnei 

Te Wānanga o Aotearoa has launched a new app and is running a national competition with more than 550 schools to celebrate Māori Language Week.                        

 

The Pūrārangi Māori (Māori alphabet) app with examples of how to correctly pronounce Māori vowels and consonants can be downloaded for free from the Apple store.                                                                                    

TWoA Rakaikahuroa (marketing) creative planning lead Chantalle Ngapo says the new resource is a koha (gift) from the wānanga to raise Māori language awareness and encourage the positive promotion of Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori (Māori Language Week).

                                                                                               The app development is a joint venture between Akoranga and Rakaikahuroa.                                                  

“The beauty of this new technology is it will help to build both your Māori language skills and confidence,” she says.                

 

                                                                   

The wānanga is also running a Māori Language Week creative competition with schools nationwide.                                                                                                               

The annual initiative, now in its eighth year, encourages school children to create te reo Māori picture books and offers the chance to have their work published by the wānanga.
