dc.description A number of technologies have been used in the promotion and propagation of te reo Māori in Aotearoa New Zealand. For over 50 years Māori have looked to technology to support te reo Māori, this was even before the age of the Internet! Different strategies and different technologies have been implemented by different groups of people. Some have been successful, some not so. This talk will examine a number of these systems that have been important in shaping the directions and current thinking of Māori language technologists. The discussion will include some early pioneering systems, the importance of keyboards and dictionaries, databases of material with Māori language content, translated/localised interfaces, the support of large international computer companies, the online learning of te reo Māori, the impact of social media and catering for Generation Z. A brief explanation will be given of te reo Māori's current status in technology, what we'd like to see in the future and how we intend to get there.
