WHAT PEOPLE SAY

This is great! Switch4Schools puts all the mental health tools kids and teachers need in one, practical and easy to use place.

Omen Facto
DEPUTY PRINCIPAL, QUEENSLAND STATE SCHOOL

The kids really love it! They were ready to go to the next level and this was perfect. They really love how the science ties in and the whole of class data is really invaluable.

Tyrone Wheeler

TEACHER, HAMILTON STATE SCHOOL

My class are really enjoying and very much valuing our check in time. My class already appear more settled and calm at the beginning of each day. The data has been great and I'm very much seeing the benefit in this sort of check in process.

Claire Kable

TEACHER, PARK RIDGE STATE SCHOOL

It's an amazing tool with targeted resources and strategies to empower students.

Karen Mahar

ASSISTANT PRINCIPAL, DEPUTY HEAD OF JUNIOR SCHOOL, RADFORD COLLEGE

I love the way it is helping students to recognise emotions, self-regulate and establish practices to help with all of those emotions.

Ann Suthers

TEACHER, HAMILTON STATE SCHOOL

Switch4Schools has been an awesome app that has been easily integrated into my class's daily routine. When the children walk in of a morning, they get their iPad and check in on the app. It takes all of 30 seconds! At the end of their check in, if students have identified feeling out of the green zone, they know they have time to go through the tools to find a strategy that might help bring them back to green for learning. Switch4Schools has also tied in beautifully with the health curriculum in grade 5 particularly, as we have a unit where the kids are identifying feelings that belong to certain behaviours, and going through scenarios for how to help themselves and others. With this seemless connection, it made teaching the vocabulary of feelings easy, and rather than the children needing to think of what they could do when not in the green zone the app provides them with strategies to try. It's been a simple way to find out how my students are feeling and gives me an opportunity to talk with those who want to. It also promotes independence and ownership of their emotions and behaviours.

WHY IS

EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE (EI)

IMPORTANT?

When students can understand and manage emotions, they are more likely to get good grades and perform well during stressful times, such as exams. In fact, when it comes to academic performance, research has revealed emotional intelligence is almost as important as cognitive intelligence and having a conscientious attitude.

 

There is also evidence that emotional intelligence not only reduces sadness and depression; anxiety and withdrawal but also improves: 

  • social cognitive skills;

  • emotion recognition and understanding;

  • self control;

  • conflict resolution;

  • planning and problem solving;

  • positive classroom atmosphere;

  • thinking before acting.
