What does it look like if an EdTech tool is committed to empowering educators? If you’re looking for a platform that is empowering educators, Hāpara has you covered. It gives educators easy access to time-saving tools to help them dedicate their time to teaching.
In today’s blog post, we’ll look at how Hāpara helps educators make decisions, organize their resources, and save time throughout the school year. And at the bottom of the post, I’ll share ways you can connect with the Hāpara team at this year’s ISTE conference.
Let’s take a look at the ways that Hāpara is empowering educators around the world!
Empowering Educators with Hāpara
Have you used Hāpara yet? Hāpara is a digital teaching and learning platform that provides a streamlined experience for teachers and students using Google Classroom. Regular readers of the blog might remember these blog posts from earlier this year, where we looked at how Hāpara can help teachers use open-ended resources. And we looked at some of the ways Hāpara supports social-emotional learning skill-building.
Easier Organization for Teachers
With Hāpara, students can access assignments, email, announcements, and G Suite files on one simple, mobile-friendly page. Everything is organized in Hāpara Student Dashboard Digital Backpack. Students can easily find the resources shared by their teacher and upcoming tasks. One way that Hāpara empowers educators is by providing teachers with a more manageable way to organize their learning materials.
Making Resource Decisions
From Workspace to Highlights, Hapara tools make teachers’ lives a little bit easier so they can focus on what’s most important. For example, the Hapara Filter allows teachers to use their discretion to unblock sites that have instructional value for students. With Hapara Filter, teachers can make the final decision on which resources they are comfortable using with students, including which sites to unblock.
Another time-saving feature within Hapara is the grouping feature. In addition to helping you organize resources to make them easier to distribute to students, the group features can help support your differentiated instruction goals. Teachers can create groups of students to share “just right” resources with just a few quick clicks.
Elevating Equity with Hāpara
The team at Hāpara wants to make sure that every student has access to the best education possible. When it comes to elevating equity, Hāpara helps make it easier for teachers to ensure the equitable distribution of resources. With Hāpara’s Digital Backpack, schools can curate diverse collections of academic resources to share with students.
Another way that Hāpara helps elevate equity is by making sure that students can learn from anywhere. Hāpara is a suite of flexible tools that allow educators to truly serve the needs of every student they support. As I mentioned earlier in the blog post, you can use this platform to differentiate instruction by giving students access to content that meets their instructional needs and connects to their interests.
Hāpara at the ISTE Conference
Today’s blog post connects to the theme of ISTE’s Annual Conference, “Empowering Educators, Elevating Equity.” Are you going to ISTE this year? Make sure to visit the Hāpara team. You’ll find them at Booth #1530 on the Expo Hall floor. One of the things I love about attending a conference is getting to connect with the folk who developed popular EdTech tools like Hāpara.
This page on Hāpara’s website has lots of information on what the Hāpara team is up to at ISTE. It includes details on a presentation and book signing by Jorge Valenzuela. You might remember Jorge from his appearance on the Easy EdTech Podcast. Find all the ways to connect with Hāpara at ISTE!
