What are the students, teachers, and principals saying?

STUDENTS

  • Want easy access to a variety of reliable information so they can help themselves and their friends
  • Want some way to gain control over their life – Anxiety and depression is a “major problem” among their peers*
  • Don’t always go to peers, parents or teachers for solutions

TEACHERS

  • Limited time for additional trainingalready so many things on our plate
  • Challenging to motivate students
  • How do we know what the students are using and how useful they are finding it?

PRINCIPALS

  • Lack of funding for training and expensive tools.
  • Will it help me get a pulse of my school?
  • Will it align with existing SEL curriculum and guidelines?

 

PROBLEM

 
“70% Of teens say anxiety and depression is a “major problem” among their peers.”
-PEW SURVEY, FEBRUARY 2019*

 

SOLUTION

 
78% Of teens have a cellphone and 37% of all teens use smartphones. Social and emotional learning programs should ideally be developed using mobile applications (“apps”) that can reduce barriers to program success.
