    implementation due
    to lack of process
    & planning

The Solution

A solution built that aims at SEL implementation with features and resources for Educators, District Leaders, School Leaders, Teachers, Students & Parents.

SEL Assessment Tool

An algorithm developed after intensive research involving R&D department of university, data scientists and educators. Intended for teachers to identify the lacking areas of SEL competencies for self, and for the students.

Goal Setting Tool

A drag & drop tool to help teachers to set the goals for a class for an academic year based on the assessment of teacher and students both.

Evaluation Tool

Intended to evaluate a class and students performance on the SEL competencies over the academic year and helps setting up the goals for the upcoming year.

SEL Curriculum

A well designed curriculum was prepared focusing on SEL competencies specific to targeted K8 students. This involved VARK (Video, Audio, Read/Write and Kinesthetic) curriculum building. Fun elements were added through custom characters designed considering the personality types of the teachers and students based on assessments during an academic year.

LMS

Adaptive learning was implemented based on the goal setting for a class that helped teachers focus on required areas within the competencies of a class. The curriculum was blended into the LMS to focus on fun learning for the students and directing the teachers towards the goal through sequential activities against each units which belong to a competency.

Parent Connection

Focused at helping parents to track the progress of students communicated via sending the student performance reports through the tool. This tool also helps implement SEL beyond the classroom by sending activities to parents for home.

PD Tool

The personnel development tool intended for teachers to learn tips & tricks for implementing the SEL. Ability to get certifications & earn badges by the teachers too.

Survey Tool

Helps to collect & analyse the data from various sources, focused at improving the SEL implementations across the schools.

SEL Library

An extensive library with PDfs, Audio, Video, and podcasts was built to generate awareness among various stakeholders for the SEL.

Multi-Tenant

The multi-tenant platform was build that caters multiple schools through the platform having license based subscriptions for the schools based on number of students & teachers.
