HIGHLIGHT on Education: A great way to share student learning from Term 2. we will be sharing your child’s learning with you through an educational software programme called Educa. Each class will have their own page where school happenings will be posted. This is similar to a Blog.
Each class also has individual profiles for each student, accessible only to invited parents & family. You will only see your child’s profile. Inside the profile will be learning stories (for Early Years), learning goals, shared learning activities, photos, videos and more.
These will all be linked to the Te Whariki Learning Outcomes or New Zealand Curriculum Achievement Objectives. The teachers will have Educa displayed on their screens during the Parent-teacher interviews and will ask you to please accept an email request to join the class page. We are excited about this becoming an ongoing interactive way of sharing your child’s learning. Educa can be viewed on PCs, iPads and phones making it a great portable programme.
