Collaboration among those who care about each child contributes inevitably to better learning outcomes.
By sharing observations with parents linked to curriculum and/or plans, you communicate your approach – in real time. Send announcements from our message dashboard.
Educa was developed first for New Zealand educators who are innovative and collaborative. Our platform is highly adaptable with a range of sharing options.
Teacher portfolios for reflections or journal entries, appraisal forms, development plans – share with peers and mentors for support. Story comment tools help mentor younger teachers in real-time. More here
Our digital portfolios save paper, although stories can be printed. Having it all online in one place – for sharing and collaboration – helps efficiency.
Use Educa’s Policies module for policies for teachers and/or parents. Upload reference material for teachers, info and forms for parents.
Reports on learning for each child, on parent engagement, on teacher activity and more help you understand your service and save time in compliance.
Any Device, Anytime, Anywhere
Observations (or learning stories) are shared with families and saved to a downloadable portfolio.
Forms & Assessments
Use our form builder to put everything online for easy access, e.g., staff appraisals, service review forms, child assessments.
Upload any framework or goal set or create your own. Then link to anything you write in Educa.
Print When Needed
Stories can be printed beautifully with borders. Include sections or not, depending on your purpose.
Lesson plans, individual and group plans. Work individually or collaborate. Share with parents, link to stories.
Foreign Language Versions
Users can choose Educa in English (default), Maori, Mandarin, Spanish or Arabic.
“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.”
