Rewa Paewai - National Coordinator, Te Reo Māori Professional Development: How about opportunities outside the classroom. So when your students leave school at the end of the day, are there opportunities for ongoing input, are you aware of the things that are out there for students in terms of homework?

Student: One that comes to mind is Quizlet...where you can input vocabulary instructions and the kids can play with that in a learning environment if they have access to the net.

Rewa Paewai - National Coordinator, Te Reo Māori Professional Development: There are lots of interactive websites for children. If you’ve watched Māori TV you’ll know that the cartoons, our primary and intermediate school children are young, so those might appeal to our children. There’s a te reo Māori programme called Tōku Reo, have any of you seen that? There’s also a website that goes with it and it’s interactive and if kids have got iPods they can download the latest segment or download the exercises that go with that. And you know how kids are, they carry their iPods everywhere they go. So the emphasis is on lots of opportunities for our children to hear te reo Māori being spoken, because that’s their model.
