MUSAC / Educa Partnership
Involving caregivers in their child’s learning journey is an important part of every child’s educational growth and development. To further enhance these opportunities MUSAC is delighted to announce a partnership with Educa, a company that provides an interactive online web-based portfolio with enhanced capability to collaborate between school, students and caregivers. We are extremely excited to be able to offer our schools access to this world class tool.
Educa is a New Zealand based education software company that has developed a student portfolio solution specifically designed to connect caregivers to their child’s learning environment. They initially developed the student portfolio for the Early Childhood Education sector, however due to the success they have had they have been asked to make it available to the school market. At present Educa is used in New Zealand, Australia, United Kingdom and the United States.
One of MUSAC’s first schools to use Educa was St Mary’s in Rotorua. Team Leader Karen Tabuteau explains how they are using Educa and what a difference it has made:
"Educa is exactly what we have been looking for. We've tried a number of options for sharing learning and engaging parents and this is by far the best. It's simple to set up and use and our teachers love it. Can quickly and easily add links to curriculum and key competency goals and families can also post learning stories. Most important of all - our parents love it and are engaged in their child's learning”.
If your school is interested in strengthening the collaboration between your school and caregivers and would like to know more about Educa please visit their website (www.geteduca.com) or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
