What age group is youhue best for?

what type of classroom can use youhue?

  • Ages 4 - 21.
    • The earlier the program is started, the earlier students can start developing healthy habits and behaviors.

    • Our support team view each classroom as unique. As such, we fully support the installation process to ensure a setup that fits your classroom's unique needs.

How are students protected on youhue?

  • Student Safety: YouHue has a feature that immediately sends an email alert when a student uses a word or phrase that might indicate a safety concern. This email is sent to a designated member of the school's staff (and/or to a parent or guardian) and to a member of the YouHue team, to make sure it is addressed.
    • YouHue automatically includes alerts for a set of words and phrases like bullying, depressed, violence. Schools can also add their own alert words and phrases. In this way, we work together with schools to get help to students who need immediate attention.
  • Student Data Protection: Student information is only stored on YouHue if the student's parent or guardian has given permission. The only piece of identifying information we use is your student's first and last name.
    • Our team uses top technologies and methods to ensure the security of student and teacher data.
    • All student data is deleted from our systems when a student stop using the program, or when a school official, parent or guardian requests that the data be deleted.
    • Data is only ever used as described (to help teachers better support their students) and is never sold or used for any other purpose.
  • For Concerned Parents and Guardians: We understand being protective over data related to our children, so while you're still getting to know us you can opt for your student not to be identified under her name in the app. In this case, your student will be assigned a username but only your school will know who that username belongs to. We never receive your student's name and from our perspective, they're just student0003. 
    • At YouHue, student wellbeing is our top priority. However, we know it's hard to entrust a stranger with personal information. So, we can create anonymous accounts for students of concerned parents.

  • Parents and guardians can try the free version of our app, called YouHue Family.
  • It is not exactly the same as our Student version, but it's similar so you can get an idea of what your child will be using.
  • The main difference between YouHue Family and the version of the app your student will see is that in YouHue Family people can send mood expressions to each other. In the student version, only your child's teachers will see their mood expression.
  • You can find the app here in the App Store.
