Professional profile

Patariki started working for CWA New Media in 2006 as a community facilitator for the TKI websites: Māori Education/Mātauranga Māori, Te Reo Māori in English medium Schools, and the Arts Online. He was also involved in the development of Māori medium and English-medium resources with a Māori education focus.

In 2011, CWA merged with Learning Media Ltd (LML). As LML turned their focus to digital resources, Patariki continued in a similar, but slightly more diverse role and has been involved in a number of projects including:

  • TKI Channel Support
  • Science Learning and Biotechnology Hubs
  • TKI Māori medium websites
  • wickED
  • Technology Online
  • Studyit, Living Heritage
  • Any Questions


Patariki has expertise in the following areas relevant to TKI Māori medium and te reo Māori (English medium) websites:

  • Quality assurance
  • Editing
  • Content management
  • Content loading
  • Translating
  • Facilitation
  • Metadata
  • Audits/reviews
  • Presentations/workshops
  • Newsletters
  • Consultation

Personal statement

Tēnā koutou katoa. I have a passion for te reo and tikanga Māori, and believe they are the key to creating a school culture that can improve the performance and achievement of Māori students. I am interested in the research available that supports this kaupapa. I also believe in the Māori concept of reciprocal learning, that is, “Ako” and “Tuakana/Teina”. I think it is essential to cover a range of teaching and learning styles when delivering programmes or lessons.
