Abstract

Māori-medium pāngarau classrooms occupy a unique space within the mathematics education landscape. The language of instruction is an endangered minority language and many teachers and learners in Māori-medium pāngarau classrooms are second language (L2) learners of te reo Māori. Mobile technology could be used in Māori-medium pāngarau classrooms to address some of the linguistic challenges. This think piece explores the benefits of using mobile technology to capture multiple representations of pāngarau concepts as a way of encouraging mathematical communication in te reo Māori.
