Talanoa Ako is an interactive educational app for Pacific parents developed by New Zealand’s Ministry of Education.

Talanoa Ako means to talk about education and learning. This is what this app will get your family doing in a fun, engaging, and easy way through interactive talanoa activities. The App features include swipe to read, record yourself, a customisable Family Plan, a customisable Goals plan and a Shareable Calendar planner.

The 7 key Talanoa Ako topics are from our Pacific parents, families and community voices of what they would like to know and understand more, so they can continue to support their children’s learning. All of these topics are linked together as you journey alongside the Tagaloa Family: Matagi (Tofiga Fepulea’i), Mafa his wife and their children Peki and Va’a.

Families can access the app in full synchronised audio in any of the 10 Pacific languages (‘Gana Tuvalu, Gagana Samoa, Gagana Tokelau, Gasav Ne Faeag Rotuam, Lea Faka Tonga, Na Vosa Vakaviti, Solomon Islands, Taetae ni Kiribati, Te Reo Māori Kuki Airani, Vagahau Niue) and English.

The Talanoa Ako app has been co-designed and co-developed by Pacific as Pacific.
