Teaching and learning indigenous languages: inspiring practices from the UNESCO Associated Schools Network

Teaching and learning indigenous languages
The purpose of this publication is to inform and provide inspiration for educators for the teaching and learning of Indigenous languages. This document presents the synthesis of the survey responses, highlights compelling examples, and outlines promising approaches for the teaching and learning of Indigenous languages, along with the mainstreaming of Indigenous cultures, histories and knowledges, in schools worldwide. The survey demonstrates a rich array of practices in ASPnet schools for the teaching of Indigenous languages in the classroom, online and beyond. Innovative solutions for Indigenous language learning during activities and events, as well as the more general promotion of Indigenous rights at and through ASPnet schools, will be discussed below.
