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. Over the next few months, look for the Hapara section of my website to start to come to life and be a resource for those that are interested!
