16 May 2014 - Te Whanake app for learning Māori

The Te Whanake app is now available for iPad and Android tablet mobile devices. This app will encompass most of the Te Whanake resources, both the print and the online resources, in a structured programme. This is a major step in improving the programme for learners and teachers from beginner through to the advanced level. The first of four parts, Te Kākano, is now available.
The Te Whanake app is container app and within that an in-app purchase for each level, starting with Te Whanake 1 Te Kākano, the first textbook in the series of four. Each level will pull material from the textbook, study guide, animations, podcasts, exercise sheets and the TV programmes of the Te Whanake series.
The app container is free, and, once downloaded, users can preview part of Te Kākano or purchase it through an in-app purchase. This was launched at the AUT University marae on 8 May this year. Over the next year the other three levels will be available.
