Our program has two versions: YouHue Individual Practice and YouHue Social Practice, both are important parts of the YouHue EDU program. Our team will help you decide which is appropriate for your school based on your goals, preferences, and student groups.
YouHue contains the following features: Mood Logging Exercise, My Mood Timeline, Privacy, and Educator View.
YouHue Social contains all the features of YouHue, plus Buddy Groups and Social Practice.
MOOD LOGGING EXERCISE
Students are guided to identify how they are feeling, and add a text note to explain why they are feeling that way.
The emotional response options (moods) allow users to examine the given list to identify feelings they may not understand. It thereby scaffolds and supports young people's understanding of ways in which they can express themselves appropriately.
This can then be translated into real life, where a set of emotional response options and such guidance are not available.
MY MOOD TIMELINE
Each time the student completes the Mood Logging Exercise, a new entry is created in her Mood Timeline.
Each log contains the mood and description created by the student, as well as the time and date.
The student can look back on her Mood Timeline to reflect on past moods, identify trends, or discuss a log with a peer, teacher, or parent.
Individual, private accounts for each student.
Staff members and parents can also have accounts, and it is encouraged.
buddy groups (optional - part of youhue social)
Students can be connected in Buddy Groups chosen by the school.
A Buddy Group can be a classroom, full grade, full school, or even just a teacher and a student. Sometimes, a Buddy Group is a special support group of students, lead by a counsellor. Sometimes, Buddy Groups span across different schools to allow students to practice with someone in a "Pen Pal" role.
Parents can also get involved to interact with their student on YouHue.
SOCIAL practice (optional - part of youhue social)
If your school chooses, students who have mastered some basic self-regulation skills can practice appropriate self-expression with peers in their Buddy Group.
Members of the same Buddy Group can ask each other, "How are you?"
If social is enabled, students can see moods of other students, but only if the mood has been specifically sent to her. There is no broadcasting on YouHue, each interaction is designed to be personal and to mimic natural social interaction.
YouHue Social students can also always log moods to a private Journal.
All moods, logged privately or shared, are saved to the student's Journal, along with time, date, details, and recipient(s).
A teacher, counsellor, support, or other educator can see the moods and notes shared to her by each student.
Also included in this report are any moods shared between students (if social is enabled).
An educator also has access to insights, trends, and keyword analysis of her group.
Educators can also designate "flagged words". If a student uses a flagged word, the school is notified.
The educator view helps schools easily identify learning issues and track the emotional wellbeing of students.
