Early Education Is Personal

Educa uses learning story templates to help educators document and share the growth and success of their children in a subjective and compelling way. Stories post to a portfolio that parents and next year’s teacher will value.

Teacher Mentoring & Reflection

Teachers have a private workspace on Educa for storing documents, reflection or inquiry and for working on their professional plans and appraisal goals. There is also a story review feature to mentor younger teachers in real-time. More here

jackie lints educare“Educa gives us a place to build and grow the picture of a child. This story can be shared with parents and future teachers, which they can contribute to and work in partnership with the centre to build these skills at home. A true partnership, where else can you get this?!”

 

“It also allows us to set organisational goals for teachers and centres so that they can go on an educational journey, and be reflective and evaluative of what they do. It is a tool that can create time, and a tool that allows us to lift the quality of what we are doing irrespective of the regulations we have to follow.”
