Wintec teaches Educa to early childcare ed students

Wintec teaches leading e-portfolio provider Educa to early childcare education students

Wellington, NZ, May 27, 2013

The Wintec Graduate Diploma of Information Technology in Education (GDITE) has this semester used Educa to better demonstrate eportfolio use in the early childhood sector.

The inclusion of Educa in the programme, which is specific to early childhood teaching, was a natural move for the module tutor, as a large proportion of students currently enrolled are early childcare trainee teachers.

Educa is the fastest growing (500%) supplier of e-portfolio for early childcare centers in New Zealand, as well as being the only provider exporting overseas. Educa founder, Nathan Li, believes that using Educa as a learning tool for the Wintec diploma students is consistent with the course’s focus on technology and pedagogy in education, as well as more suitable for organising e-portfolios for younger children.

“I believe that Educa is the right system for GDITE because we provide the most advanced and widely used e-portfolio system in early childhood centres. Educa is also the first and only e-portfolio tool with smart phone apps!” said Nathan Li.

Course tutor, Heath Sawyer is pleased that his students can experience an e-portfolio like Educa so they can transfer this knowledge into the centres they practice in.

“Educa is a great place to reflect on learning experiences the child has had, it also links to Te Whariki which gives more meaning to the e-portfolio. I believe with this site, parents will gain more understanding of the learning that is happening with their children.”
