2. Inform Parents and Students

It is a good idea to let your students' families know about School Day Wellbeing. They might be happy to know that your school is focusing on student wellbeing and they might worry about the data safety. Also, explaining parents and students why wellbeing is an important part of learning helps them become more engaged with school life.

Download a ready-made letter to the parents here.

 

3. Install the App

School Day Wellbeing Application can be downloaded from Apple App Store (iOS) and from Google Play (Android). It can be downloaded as a single purchase or by using Apple Volume Purchase Program, and it operates in single-use mode or multi-user mode in case of shared devices.

4. Use the App

Students react on five statements or questions about their wellbeing by tapping on icons on a screen in a mobile app (iOS, Android), web application (any browser) or Teams-app twice a day. Answering takes only a couple of seconds.

It is important that schools keep reminding their students to answer the questions and give them opportunities to do so. Our hundreds of questions are randomized and it will take a few weeks for the first visuals of our data to form.

School Day Wellbeing Model is based on scientific research on student wellbeing and it is designed in Finland by experienced educators and educational scientists, as such our service complies with level 4 in ESSA.

The information collected by the app belongs to the school and is stored safely in a cloud. Depending on the individual access rights, the staff can analyze data on a school level or class level. Data about individual students will not be made available to anyone. 

School Day is certified by iKeepSafe as compliant with FERPA and COPPA and adheres to all U.S. local, state, and federal laws that govern student data.

5. Get Insights

Our web-based tool School Day Insights lets teachers and school leaders see at one glance how their students are doing in five wellbeing categories External ConditionsSocial RelationshipsMeans for Self-FulfillmentHealth, and Social-Emotional Skills and the change that has happened from the previous week in each category.

This information is presented in the form of dial charts and each category contains a great deal of information relating to various wellbeing phenomena. For example, if you click on ‘Health’ you will see the results in phenomena ‘Physical health’, “Mental health’, “Sleep” and “Diet”.

You can find Insights here. Log in with your school account or School Day account. You will be able to look at the data of your own group of students, or if you are a school leader, you can see the data for all students in your school.

Feel free to explore Insights, there is nothing you can mess up :D If you get lost, just click the School Day logo and you’ll be where you started!

6. Discuss Wellbeing

This is the part where we need your help!

Your students make the effort to answer our questions, so you need to show them that their effort is worth while. Discuss the questions, view the data, and tell the students what you have found out. Together brainstorm ways to develop your school. Remind them that your data will change as they work on their wellbeing and remember to visit the app to answer our questions.

We believe that our questions will make your students think about their wellbeing and the wellbeing of others more often. They will want to know what the Insights tell you. Remember to praise them for good achievement, also regarding their wellbeing, and give them tips for enhancing those areas of their wellbeing that need work.

Let's do this together! <3
