Both the online journal and the app are accompanied by teacher support materials chock-full of ideas for exploring the languages and cultures of Latin America.
The journal, app and additional digital resources were commissioned by the Latin America Centre of Asia-Pacific Excellence (CAPE), in partnership with the School of Languages and Cultures at Te Herenga Waka—Victoria University of Wellington, Toitoi Media, and Kiwa Digital.
In 2020 Toitoi: Latin America Special Issue journals were delivered to every school and public library in New Zealand. The project is part of the Latin America CAPEs education offerings which aim to inspire New Zealanders to gain understanding of the countries of Latin America and to help parents, teachers and students gain global competence with a focus on that region.
Toitoi is a quarterly journal that celebrates the ideas, imaginations and creative spirit of New Zealand’s young writers and artists.
It publishes material with an original and authentic voice that other young people can connect to and be inspired by and that reflects the cultures and experiences of life in New Zealand.
Its philosophy is to treat young writers and artists with respect, handle their work with care and produce a beautifully designed journal of high quality.
