Many services like to showcase their approach or values by adding their proprietary curriculum into Educa, making it available for linking to stories and plans. These links help your service's voice and philosophy come through in your updates to parents.
Note, if it's a state, national or other public learning goal set you are looking for, please contact support and we will upload it for you. Our goal is to keeping building our list of "standard" curricula.
But if you have a specific curriculum or philosophy of your own that you'd like to use, then you can add this yourself. This is a totally custom curriculum that belongs only to your site. Follow the steps below to learn how to set this up.
1: Cick "Curriculum" under Tools
2: Then, click "Create Curriculum" to start.
This will then open up the Create Curriculum popup box. Fill out the fields in the popup and click "Create" to confirm.
You will now be on the new Curriculum's page, as shown below, where you can set everything up. Click "Add Category" to begin.
After you've created your categories you can then create sub-categories underneath them, or you can start creating your goals right away. How you do this depends on the complexity of your curriculum and/or how you'd like to organise it.
Tip: Think of a "category" like a folder on your computer. They help you organise the learning goals/outcomes.
Select the category you'd like to work on by clicking it. Then click "Add Category" underneath to add a sub-category, or "Add Goal" to add a goal.
Tip: The Goals become the checkboxes you tick on a learning story
Here is how it looks with the goals added:
- Each Category and Goal you create will also have an Edit and a Delete option.
- Curriculum pages auto-save. Once you're finished making changes, you are ready to go! Just make sure the curriculum is enabled (ticked) on the Curriculum Library page.
