How I Use It
Using the Hāpara Teacher Dashboard & Workspace suite enables teachers to move from simply delivering digitized content to enriching and empowering students through providing student voice and student choice for students to demonstrate their learning.
In our school division, educators and administrators use Hāpara to:
*provide opportunities for students to develop future-ready skills in class and at home with multiple opportunities to receive formative feedback and opportunities for self-directed learning.
* leverage Hāpara to connect with students during school closures, such as snow days, so that relevant, rigorous, grade-appropriate content can continue to be delivered.
*deliver all in house professional learning using Hāpara’s Instructional Suite to provide rich opportunities for their staff to develop the knowledge and skills necessary to integrate Hāpara into their practice.
*design learning and engage learners in a productive struggle where individual strengths are leveraged to support academic, social, and emotional growth.
With Hāpara, teachers can:
*access all student work from one dashboard
*share assignments to students and access their individual student work without having to deal with sharing permissions
*differentiate instruction from a single dashboard to multiple groups of students at a distance
*personalize learning with shared learning Workspaces for individual students, groups, and the whole class
*group students for small group meetings and instruction
*share content across the entire district
*when teachers need to manage student web browsing such as securing exams, pushing URLs to students, and presenting only specific URLs on student devices, this functionality is also available.
With Hāpara, students can:
*access all learning content and web-based learning from a mobile device or their home computer
*organize learning assignments
*get notifications of overdue work
*organize for multiple subjects
*instantly receive teacher notifications for online connection and student-to-student group work
