edSpace was a CORE initiative developed to support the professional learning of educators, internally and externally, by bringing them together in online communities of practice. It had particular success in supporting the success of the Te Whāriki contract CORE held with the Ministry of Education in 2018. In this case thousands of early years educators were able to connect with each other online through edSpace to discuss the implementation of Te Whāriki. edSpace also had a role to play in supporting discussion threads for the Digital Technologies Hangarau Matihiko contract which CORE held.
