After adopting Google Apps for Education in 2010, educators in New Zealand’s Manaiakalani school cluster realized they needed a better way to manage learners’ activities in the new digital environment. They collaborated to design a dream tool.
Hāpara (the Māori word for dawn) was born from these efforts in 2011, with the launch of its original Teacher Dashboard. Today, Hāpara has a range of products built to support educators as they create safe, personalized learning experiences.

The Hāpara Instructional Suite is reflective of how we think about learning and its role in creating a better world.
When educators engage more deeply with learners and strengthen connections with them, collaboration and teamwork become second nature in the classroom.
By empowering educators, they empower students to become involved in their own learning.
Creating a school experience that is more collaborative and engaging nurtures social equity, equipping learners to impact the world in a positive way.
Understanding exactly what students are doing allows educators to set goals and improve learning experiences.
We believe technology should support the human relationships that define educational experiences.
