The Kato Toolkit has been designed as a gift for tertiary educators to help them transform the way they embrace and celebrate Pacific cultures and learners in their classrooms and learning spaces.

This Kato can help educators develop:

  • Knowledge about how to educate Pacific learners.
  • Skills such as relationship building, understanding Pacific values such as respect, and effective cultural communication.
  • Attitudes and behaviours that resonate with Pacific learners, such as respect for diversity and acceptance of others.

It can be used in a wide range of tertiary teaching and learning contexts.
