HOW IT WORKS
What is it?
Kōtuitui is an integrated unit of work that supports ākonga (students) to use the FIFA Women's World Cup 2023™ as a context for connecting to others in our bicultural and multicultural society. Kōtuitui learning experiences are designed for ākonga in years 4 through to 8 and are intended to provide ākonga with the skills and knowledge to connect to cultures other than their own, both in Aotearoa New Zealand and across the globe. Kōtuitui is coordinated by New Zealand Football and is available to schools and kura throughout Aotearoa New Zealand.
What is included?
Kōtuitui includes classroom learning experiences and football learning experiences. Classroom experiences help ākonga learn about culture and collective identity. Football experiences provide you with support to use the FIFA Women's World Cup 2023™ as a context for ākonga to learn about culture and collective identity.
How to get involved?
Use the register section to let us know that your school or kura wants to get involved. We will then put you in contact with your Regional Football Federation or a football club to support the provision of the football experiences component of Kōtuitui.
Kōtuitui includes three sets of learning experiences. Each set has four learning experiences designed to help ākonga develop the knowledge and skills to connect to cultures other than their own, both in Aotearoa New Zealand and across the globe. Register today and we will start setting you up to work on Kōtuitui with your ākonga. And in the meantime you can preview each set of classroom learning experiences by clicking on the images below.
RUNNING A WORLD CUP
Kōtuitui provides a set of football experiences for teachers and ākonga as they use the FIFA Women's World Cup 2023™ as a context for learning about culture and collective identity.
Teachers and kaiako can join a professional learning development session facilitated by New Zealand Football to learn about a set of football and futsal games that can be used to support and reinforce classroom learning experiences.
FIFA have created a set of online activities and a ticketing programme so that ākonga can find out more about the FIFA Women's World Cup 2023™ and have an opportunity to get up close to the action.
And New Zealand Football have a range of ideas on how to run a Kōtuitui festival to engage whānau in the research and activities that ākonga have undertaken and provide opportunities for ākonga to participate in a range of fun football focused activities.
Register today and we will get you set up to start working on Kōtuitui with your ākonga.
Kōtuitui is available to schools and kura across Aotearoa New Zealand to deliver during either term 2, 3 or 4 this year as the country hosts the FIFA Women's World Cup 2023™.
