Local Language Teaching and Learning Materials
Local language teaching and learning materials include:
- community generated reading materials;
- teaching and learning materials made from locally available resources; and
- professionally authored, illustrated, designed, and created teaching and learning aids.
These materials provide a way for children and families to access important information, provide a variety of platforms for learning and knowledge sharing and spaces for community advocacy. Local language teaching and learning materials can be adapted in participatory and empowering processes that enable sustainable transformation which supports the improvement of learning outcomes through literacy, numeracy and life skills development.
