This article is the result of a Ministry of Education Teacher Led Innovation Fund (TLIF) project. The inquiry explored how the older children in an immersion early childhood education (ECE) environment can expand their knowledge of the Samoan language using digital technology. Bilingual children learn better when their own language is recognised and valued. During early years of development children are endowed with "a hundred languages" through which they can express their ideas (Edwards et al., 2011).
