Breathing new life into teaching resources

Kōhanga reo, Samoan kindergartens and schools around the country have access to a rich online audio teaching resource, thanks to restoration work by staff of Victoria’s Language Learning Centre.

Balint Koller and Edith Palliat from the Language Learning Centre present their new teaching resources

Balint Koller and Edith Paillat (pictured) were part of the Language Learning Centre team that released free digital recordings of about twenty Māori and Samoan language learning readers that had been published non-commercially on tape in the 1980s and 1990s by the Ministry of Education.

The result is a digital audio-bookshelf that gives better access to precious and long-underused resources.
