Hapara

 Language: Māori
Noun: Dawn

Hapara began in New Zealand in the Manaiakalani school cluster in 2011 and now has offices in Auckland and Silicon Valley. Our team includes ex-Googlers, PhDs, HBS grads, and top-tier educators who are all dedicated to building great products for schools.

After adopting Google Apps for Education in 2010, Manaiakalani educators realized they needed a more effective way of managing learner work in this new digital environment. They collaborated to design a dream tool that would streamline teacher workflow and deepen personalized learning and student engagement. They emphasized a straightforward design that would empower teachers of all technical abilities to track learner progress, provide ongoing feedback, disseminate files, and facilitate collaboration and differentiation through flexible groupings. From this, Hapara’s original Teacher Dashboard was born.

Today, Hapara has a range of products that were all built to support educators as they create authentic, personalized learning experiences. Our work is inspired by John Hattie’s research on Visible Learning and by the teachers, administrators and learners we work with every day.
