Purpose and goal
The most common digital solutions offered to schools today are platforms for subjects such as maths, languages, geography, etc. However, there is no platform for pre-schools / schools that provide EQ practicing digitally. According to a study by Word Economic Forum, EQ will be among the most required skills by 2020. Peppy Webb (PW) is the right step towards digitalization of the school system. Peppy Pals is the 1st EdTech company in the world providing innovative games, books and films with lesson plans to teach children about empathy, cooperation and emotion.
Expected results and effects
According to research, practicing on EQ leads to: -Better results in school and working life - Prevents bullying and exclusion -Better relationships -Improvement of Empathy -Better impulse control -Less stress in life -Improvement of self-esteem
Planned approach and implementation
Work on social and emotional intelligence (EQ) is compulsory according to Common Core Standards for schools, however there is no digital tool for creating continuity and follow-up of the work. In PW, the user will be able to see when the child has played through different scenarios and if the exercises are completed. Hence teachers can easily create and print reports to meet the goals. With PW´s "share" feature, we also create a bridge between parents and teachers, where both can use the same exercises with their children.
