Overall Rating

Engagement Is the product stimulating, entertaining, and engrossing? Will kids want to return?

My DPS is an excellent app to help teach emotions and social problem solving techniques. The CGI animations are impressive, and the app's music is calming with comforting lyrics.

Pedagogy Is learning content seamlessly baked-in, and do kids build conceptual understanding? Is the product adaptable and empowering? Will skills transfer?

Kids can learn to identify emotions and successful coping mechanisms, as well as hone interpersonal skills. The CGI animations help kids handle stress by developing self-reliance to overcome emotional obstacles.

Support Does the product take into account learners of varying abilities, skill levels, and learning styles? Does it address both struggling and advanced students?

The in-app visual and aural cues are accessible to kids with developmental and learning differences. Users can customize the app by adding their own pictures and text to emotions and coping techniques.
