How I Use It
I run small groups based on social emotional learning. I would use the tool to see where my students needs were social emotionally and then teach curriculum that was the most relevant to the group. The kiddos were not super excited about the actual survey with all the vocabulary words, but we were able to start and stop the survey and take breaks when needed, that was very helpful! However the students were very engaged in the lessons as I taught them and were interested in meeting with me individually to work on plans to acquire or improve the skill sets where they working on. I was able to use the curriculum and survey results to teach skills and help the students become more introspective. It worked well individually and as a group. I used the lesson plans for my groups and the individualized survey results to do one on one meeting with students. I was also able to use the insights to help the other individuals working with the kiddos know how to approach them to get positive results.
The only part that was a little rough on working with this program was the number of vocabulary words the kiddos had to go through. If you did not have a kiddo who was above an 8th great reading level it was a little difficult, so there was a little bit of explaining to kiddos to get them to the place they needed to be at. However once we got past that part students were very engaged in the process. I was able to get insights into my kiddos that I would not necessarily have been able to get without using the tool. It cut down on some of my learning curve time, so I could jump in and start moving the needed with kiddos.
