Writing a story allows educators to document and share learning. When stories are published they are automatically added to the child's portfolios and immediately shared with families. Families can then comment or create their own stories, feeding into the cycle of learning.
With four different types of stories on Educa (Individual, Group, Parent and Student), we see multiple styles of documentation on Educa, with centres using stories to post:
- Learning Stories
- Daily Updates
- Work Samples
- Anecdotal Records
The story creation tool allows educators to add evidence of learning through photos, videos and files. Relevant curriculum outcomes can then be linked to, providing context for learning.
Through class privacy settings, Site Administrators can choose who can create and view stories for each child. This corresponds with all forms of documentation on Educa.
Site Administrators can also turn on Story Approval at their centre, meaning a senior educator must approve stories prior to them being published. This controls the quality of the posts published and encourages collaboration between educators.
