There are three ways to create new learnings set for your service:

1. Create your own private set:

2. Select an existing public set.

3. Adapt a public set to your needs.

Within each learning set you create or select, you can:

  • Edit the set.

  • Create a new folder.

  • Create a new learning tag.

The changes you make to this set will only be reflected in your organisation.


Create your own private set

If the default, or public learning sets don’t meet your early learning service’s needs, you can create your own private learning sets.

1. In the top left box titled Our learning sets, tap the New set link.

2. In the pop-up window, give your new learning set a name and save it, so it can be used at your service.

3. You can then add the relevant folders and tags for your new learning set.



Select an existing public set

Public sets are are created by Storypark in consultation with regional education specialists and with permission from the original authors.

Examples might include a country’s or state’s curriculum (eg. Te Whāriki, Early Years, International Baccalaureate etc). If you see a learning set within the public sets that would suit your service, you can add it to your learning sets.

1. In the Learning set library, click the public set you’d like to add to your learning sets:

2. The public set will be show in the middle of the screen, so you can check the folders and tags before adding it to your service.

3. To the right of the set name click Copy to your learning sets:

4. The set will now appear in the ‘Our learning sets’ box, and the tags within it will be visible whenever you write a story. Next to the name of the set it will say ‘(Private)’ to show that this set is now part of your private learning sets and can be removed or adapted as you see fit.

Search for an existing ‘public’ set

If you don’t see the curriculum or set of learning outcomes you’re looking for you can search for it. In the Learning set library tap ‘Search':

In the text field begin typing the name you’re looking for. If the set you’re looking for exists as a public set, it will show up here:



Adapt a public set to your needs

You can use a public set right out of the box, or you can adapt one to suit the cultural or individual needs of your early learning service.

1. First, you need to add a public set to your learning sets (see ‘Select an existing ‘public’ set’ above). 

2. When that set is selected in the ‘Our learning sets’ box, you’ll see the name of the set next to the word ‘(Private)’ to show that this set is now part of your private learning sets and can be removed or adapted as you see fit. This is simply a copy of the original public set so if you edit or delete it, it will only alter your private copy, not the public copy.

3. Next to the set name you’ll see three links: Edit set, New folder and New tag. To learn more about how to use these links read ‘Manage learning sets and tags’.


Create a folder

You can create folders within any of your learning sets.

1. Click on any of your private learning sets in the ‘Our learning sets’ box. 

2. Next to the set or folder name, click ‘New folder’, and in the drop-down box give your folder a name. 

3. Click the ‘Set/folder’ field and a drop-down menu will appear which lets you file the folder where you wish. You can add a folder within the main set, or within other folders. It’s a little like adding folders on your computer.

4. Now, when writing a story in the story editor you can click on ‘All learning tags’ in the 'Select tags' panel and you’ll see a list of all your sets and the folders within them.

Create a learning tag

You can create learning tags within any of your learning sets.

1. Click on any of your private learning sets in the ‘Our learning sets’ box. 

2. Next to the set or folder name, click ‘New tag’ and give your tag a name. 

3. Type a short optional description explaining what this tag means. The description could include a link to a website page if you want to explain the concept further; simply copy and paste the website address into the description field making sure you include ‘www.’ This description will be visible when someone clicks on a tag in a story, opening up a small box for them to read.

4. Click the 'Set/folder’ field and a drop-down menu will appear which lets you file the tag in any folder you wish. 

5. Now, when writing a story in the story editor you can click on ‘All learning tags’ in the top learning tags box, select the set and folder where you filed your tag and you’ll see your new tag.
