Randy Becomes a Hapara Certified Educator

by Randy Fairfield, 1/24/17

Over the past couple of months, I have been participating in a cohort of educators going through Hapara’s Certified Educator program. It has been a pleasure to learn more about the platform, and the facilitators were great! Here’s a special thanks to Evyan Wagner (@evyan_of_hapara), Heather Panitch (@heatherpanitch), Eleni Kyritsis (@misskyritsis), and Amy Harris (@MsharrisEDU) for doing a great job with facilitation.

I am looking forward to going through their certified trainer program and learning more about what I can do to spread the Hapara love! One of the things I appreciated most was that our facilitators emphasized that Hapara is not a “do everything” tool, but rather can be used in a complementary role alongside other tools when it comes to supporting student-centered outcomes. Innovating and imagining where Hapara fits in as a tool for facilitating best practices such as those outlined in John Hattie’s Visible Learning has a lot been fun—particularly exploring other public Hapara Workspaces and seeing how other educators are using the platform.
