about the innovation

Why did you create this innovation?

Many government/low fee schools are overburdened & lack resources, teaching by rote, ignoring individual needs/the future/creativity, not teaching vital skills. Inequity exists due to differences in income/gender/race/religion/geography. Research shows play & socioemotional skills bridge such issues. SEL programs must be holistic, scalable, sustainable, adaptable, educationally sound & measurable.

How does your innovation work in practice?

We equip facilitators (teachers/parents/community) with an app to deliver proprietary content adaptable to any language/culture, taught anywhere by anyone. Only facilitators require the app to teach in person/remotely. In app videos address last mile issues. Via a breadth of skills approach every child shines & socio-emotional skills are developed. Activities or full lessons can be taught from Self, Society or Ecology Umbrellas or Pandemic Recovery Activities. Classes are active, experiential, engaging, iterative & play-based. Kids feel included, schools & educators win, society strengthens.

Facilitators measure impact, collect participant feedback, are rewarded with tokens for positive action via the app; they’re pedagogically upskilled across subjects, improve their social emotional competencies whilst teaching, achieve greater job satisfaction & are less likely to burnout.
