Why Social - Emotional Learning Matters


SCROLL DOWN

Why Social - Emotional Learning Matters


Students' brains are not available for academic learning when they are undergoing intense emotions

In order for students to stay engaged and motivated, they need to learn how to maintain focus and effort in the face of setbacks, work effectively with others, and be good communicators and problem-solvers.

Social and Emotional skills can be taught to every student

A 2011 large-scale study showed that K-12 students who are involved in social and emotional learning programming score an average of 11 percentile points higher on standardized achievement tests compared to students who are not involved in such programming.

Social and Emotional Learning yields positive sustained outcomes, on top of preventing negative outcomes

Extensive research over the past 20 years has widely demonstrated that social and emotional skills foster self-confidence, cognitive ability, successful academic learning, creativity, physical and mental health, and happiness while preventing significant negative outcomes.


Defining Social-emotional learning

According to CASEL (Collaborative for Academic, Social and Emotional Learning), Social and Emotional Learning includes 5 core competencies:

  • SELF-AWARENESS: the ability to accurately recognize one’s emotions and thoughts and their influence on behavior. This includes accurately assessing one’s strengths and limitations and possessing a well-grounded sense of confidence and optimism

  • SELF-MANAGEMENT: the ability to regulate one’s emotions, thoughts, and behaviors effectively in different situations. This includes managing stress, controlling impulses, motivating oneself, and setting and working toward achieving personal and academic goals

  • SOCIAL AWARENESS: the ability to take the perspective of and empathize with others from diverse backgrounds and cultures, to understand social and ethical norms for behavior, and to recognise family, school, and community resources and supports

  • RELATIONSHIP SKILLS: the ability to establish and maintain healthy and rewarding relationships with diverse individuals and groups. This includes communicating clearly, listening actively, cooperating, resisting inappropriate social pressure, negotiating conflict constructively, and seeking and offering help when needed

  • RESPONSIBLE DECISION-MAKING: the ability to make constructive and respectful choices about personal behavior and social interactions based on consideration of ethical standards, safety concerns, social norms, the realistic evaluation of consequences of various actions, and the well-being of oneself and others

Well Designed Games are the Most Efficient way to learn


Well Designed Games are the Most Efficient way to learn


Our strong Game Design principles are in keeping with the way children's brains learn

  • Focus: our games are broken down into 15 sessions, each with a clear and single learning objective without any distractions from the learning task

  • Learning through active play: we ensure the player can't win the game just by randomly tapping anywhere. We keep players engaged thanks to adaptive learning: depending on the player's performance, our game automatically adapts to provide the most appropriate level of difficulty to the player (each game includes 5 levels of difficulty)

  • Immediate feedback: our games provide a safe space for trial and error. In case a wrong answer is selected, hints are given to the player to encourage him to try again instead of penalizing him and creating unnecessary stress. Each answer triggers visual and audio feedback

  • Consolidating knowledge: during each session, skills acquired in the app are transferred to real life. Throughout the different sessions, the player must reinvest what he previously learned in the pedagogical progression. Visual cues are provided to foster understanding and memorization

how Our Games Foster Creativity


how Our Games Foster Creativity


our game design and unique Artwork consistently Fuel Children's Creativity 

  • Our games teach SEL from multiple angles : visual, audio, linguistic, body, kinesthetic in order to cater to diverse sensitivities among children and to allow them to create more connections between their perceptions and their feelings

  • Our games allow children to highlight how similar and how unique they are regarding their emotions

  • Our games teach children to step into someone else's shoes and to imagine different outcomes to a given situation

  • Unique artwork supports this vast array of perceptions, thanks to an exclusive collaboration with a very renown Japanese artist, Masahiro Naruse. His surrealistic inspirations are a cornerstone to fostering children's imagination, sense of humor and creativity, while dealing with subjects that matter
