This showcase event will profile five Australian EdTech solutions that are proven, available, and ready to scale in the K12 school sector.
The companies presenting their solutions in this webinar are:
Skodel is the most intuitive self reporting tool for monitoring the wellbeing of each child. Unlike traditional large scale survey approaches, Skodel enables teachers to ‘check-in’ with their students in 30 seconds. With every check-in, Skodel builds a picture of each students’ wellbeing and communicates this back to teachers in a simple and easy manner, so that all stakeholders can understand what wellbeing looks like for the individual, class and whole school.
Champion Life uses regular physical activity as a “superpower” to improve student’s mental and physical health. We do this by engaging them in fun physical activities presented by real-life role models who are “virtual mentors” that not only inspire activity but deliver positive wellbeing messages. Behind all this activity and positive mentoring is a comprehensive wellbeing monitoring system that provides valuable wellbeing and physical literacy data to help schools to support and improve student wellbeing throughout the year.

A wellbeing program for teachers. Surveys show 60% of Australian teachers are stressed with some also suffering work-related depression. Over 30% of Australian teachers are leaving the profession within their first five years. WorkCover receives more compensation claims from teachers than from any other profession.
