Share the magic of early learning
Learning story software from New Zealand.
Create, share and save learning stories,
all in one place.
Educa has a default 4-block learning story template – describe activity, what learning happened here, what’s next and a private evaluation box parents don’t see. The labels can be changed, boxes can be hidden..
The need to document those magic moments helps teachers observe each child through a lens of learning growth. It’s a transformative change in mindset.

Write beautiful learning stories
Use images, videos and countless font options to create your story. Educa has smart image sizing and other tools to make your stories visually compelling – online and in print.
Educa has a 3-section default story template to support the Learning Story process – the story, then customizable question boxes: What learning is happening here? and Opportunities and possibilities.
Start by taking a photo, dictating into your phone or writing a quick draft. Then finish it off later.
Reflect and link to frameworks
Link to any framework, development milestones or proprietary objectives. We can upload anything you like into Educa or you can write your own framework.
You can also link to plans.
Approval settings and mentoring
In Educa, teachers can be approved to publish to parents directly or their stores can require approval. Teachers also have mentors who see their work and can make comments.
Educa uses a “pending story” page to help make the approval process efficient.
This is the magic of learning stories. Heartfelt learning stories written by teachers start real conversations with parents, in a private channel in Educa.
