Educator Impact has offered its new Wellbeing Pulse tool to help schools look after students while COVID-19 distance learning continues.
Remoteness compounds the difficulty of measuring student wellbeing, at the exact moment when dislocation has increased stressors on everyone – students, their families and teachers. In response, Educator Impact is supporting schools through its new Wellbeing Pulse, a platform which allows for real-time collection and monitoring of school wellbeing.
“Pulse asks students to ‘check in’ each week. It’s exceedingly simple to use and the whole process takes less than a minute, ” Educator Impact CEO, Nabil Shaheen said.
Brendon Guest, Head of Senior School at St Philip’s Christian College, Cessnock said “Having students use Pulse has given us a real-time insight into a student’s wellbeing, both as a moment in time and a longer-term pattern, that allows a more agile response to student needs. This has been especially useful to us during COVID-19 when students are working from home.”
Educator Impact is offering Pulse to Australian schools on a 'pay what you can' basis for the remainder of the school year. This is made possible through the support of Amazon Web Services, EI’s infrastructure provider.
To manage teacher wellbeing through an unprecedented year, EI will collaborate with The Flourish Movement’s Dr Adam Fraser for the launch of Pulse for Teachers in Term 3.
