Ngātiwai launches new interactive digital resources

Ngātiwai launches new interactive digital resources

Ngātiwai Trust Board will launch three specially developed digital resources by
showcasing them to Kaumātua on Friday 28 March at the Terenga Paraoa Marae on
Porowini Avenue, Whangarei.

The three interactive digital applications tell Ngātiwai stories.

Ngātiwai Education’s Joeann Waata who has been involved since its inception says
it was pleasing to see Ngātiwai high school students getting involved in the creation of the resources.

“The best part about these resources is that they reflect the effort and work of three students from Kamo High and one from Tikipunga High who are of Ngātiwai descent with the guidance of our esteemed Kaumātua George Tokowhati Martin,” Joeann “We put a high value on education at Ngātiwai and it is wonderful that we can make these resources available to students so quickly after the book we launched last month- ‘Ngā Kōrero o Ngātiwai’.”

The applications are titled: ‘Te Ika Tuatahi a Moko’ (Moko’s First Fish); ‘Ngātiwai ki Uta; Ngātiwai ki Tai (Ngātiwai of the Land; Ngātiwai of the Sea) and Te Omanga Roa a Ngā Maunga o te Moananui a Kiwa (The Great Mountain Race of the Pacific).

Joeann Waata said the introduction of digital resources takes the education process a step further.

“It is a good innovation when we can provide students with digital resources in this day and age and we hope they and their teachers make the most of these apps.”

Ngātiwai will be involved in developing a further 11 digital resources as part of the project.

Syriza Win Greek Election: The Rumblings Of The Left

Binoy Kampmark: The left – and by this, the genuine, progressive, unmanagerial left – is getting noisy. The Greek elections are upon us, with the similar challenges being played out from 2012. There are fears of Grexit – a heavy breathing departure from the eurozone that will do everything to rattle the central currency mechanism that has been taking a battering...

Much of this has been triggered by the moral outrage and political response of the left grouping centred on Syriza of Greece. The movement has been said to have similarities to a new constellation of power in Spain, led by Podemos. Syriza, led by Alexis Tsipras, has promised to renegotiate the terms of Greece’s 240 billion euro international bailout arrangements. Both parties point out to the distance between elector and the elected, a creeping death of democratic accountability in favour of market propriety. More>>

This stems from work in 2012 (the City Centre Future Access study) which responded to a government request to develop a robust and achievable solution for access to the CBD. More>>

It may well be that after being shoulder-tapped in Queensland for the GCSB job, three years of living in Wellington has been enough for Fletcher and his family, given that the pending review of the GCSB would have required an even longer commitment from him. Three years of Wellington’s weather is enough for anyone... More>>
