Learning Story Software
Create and share online, via apps or print
Share the magic of early learning
Learning story software from New Zealand
Learning Stories do not sit outside the teaching process like other assessments (documentation of learning). Rather, they are an approach to assessment that serve a reporting purpose, but more importantly help teachers stay focused on each child – documentation for learning.
The acts of observing the child, reflecting and then writing Learning Stories and the feedback that comes from sharing stories all feed into better choices by the adults around the child and better learning outcomes.
Furthermore, Learning Stories are heart-led, reflective documentation that builds meaningful connections to families. Real time sharing is an essential part of this collaboration, the role played by Educa, learning story software accessible on any device.
Learning Stories replace the need for other reporting to families and serve as assessment or evidence, replacing the need for other data collection.
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 Educa learning story platform connects the community of adults around each child by making it easy to share learning online, via our free family app or by printing. The stories print beautifully for child folios or your center wall.

Make families part of your process
This is the magic of learning stories. Heartfelt learning stories written by teachers will be read, your teaching and the learning have a better chance of being understood.
And that creates a foundation for two-way conversations with parents, in a private channel in Educa.
