about the innovation

What is School Day?

Student wellbeing and social-emotional learning has a direct link to motivation, learning and results. Therefore, it is worth investing in.

But what concrete actions can a school take to support its students’ wellbeing?

School Day makes student, teacher and school community wellbeing topics a natural part of every school day. It provides an opportunity for fast, real-time and interactive collection of wellbeing information.

At the same time, valuable wellbeing awareness is created: students learn the importance of different factors affecting wellbeing in their schoolwork.

What if the school always knew how students and teachers were doing? How much did the class sleep last night? How was their energy this morning? Or how did the big change last week affect the moods?

Continuous gathering of wellbeing data makes wellbeing phenomena visible for early interventions - and helps celebrating positives in the classroom. 

The solution also provides students and teachers with the feeling that their wellbeing matters. It is a user-friendly and easy way to increase the positive atmosphere and communication at schools.

Many times, it’s all about the small questions. For example, you can ask the students about school spirit or feeling of safety.
