Our beginnings

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.

Hāpara

( How to pronounce hā • pa • ra )

Language: Māori
(noun) dawn.

By empowering educators, they empower students to become involved in their own learning.

Equity

Creating a school experience that is more collaborative and engaging nurtures social equity, equipping learners to impact the world in a positive way.

Transparency

Understanding exactly what students are doing allows educators to set goals and improve learning experiences.

Technology
