StrongMinded SEL Receives High Praise from Digital Promise for Addressing SEL in Any Instruction Model – Remote, Hybrid, and School-Based

Online 5-Minute Lessons Build SEL Competencies and
Easily Integrate Into Any 6-12th Grade Curriculum

Chandler, AZ – October 21st, 2020 –StrongMinded, a recently released digital solution for social-emotional learning, has been certified for the highest level of Research-Based Design from one of the nation’s leading education technology organizations, Digital Promise. This product certification serves as a rigorous, reliable signal for district and school administrators, educators, and families looking for evidence of research-based educational technology products.

StrongMinded is a new concept in social emotional learning (SEL) for grades 6-12 that leverages technology to embolden student SEL growth through a personalized learning experience. This fall, approximately 22,000 students in Arizona, Ohio, Michigan, and Pennsylvania schools will use StrongMinded for SEL development.

“Educators and families want to know which edtech products are based in research on learning,” said Karen Cator, president and CEO of Digital Promise. “Digital Promise’s Product Certifications provide that assurance when selecting edtech products.”

StrongMinded offers an extensive library of research-based, bite-sized lessons – each just about five minutes long and targeted to a specific SEL skill. Because lessons are digitally-delivered and mobile-enabled, StrongMinded is compatible with any instructional model – remote, hybrid, or school-based – ensuring continuity of learning as models change, particularly over this school year.

“We recognized a huge need for a student-centered, research-based approach to teaching and learning social emotional skills – one that addressed individual student needs, which complemented rather than competed with academic instruction,” commented Yovhane Metcalfe, Chief Academic Officer, StrongMind.

StrongMinded requires minimal training, can be quickly implemented, and is user-friendly for both teachers and students. To learn more about how StrongMinded builds core social emotional learning competencies, register for our webinar, StrongMinded: SEL Right Now on October 28th at 2pm EST.
