Education technology for TELCO’s
Offering meaningful, fit-for-purpose, secure content.
There’s a latent concern among parents about screen time and appropriateness of content being accessed by children. Education is one of the industries that will continue to thrive in the future. As such, it is beyond the trends, fashions, or preferences that characterise other distributed content.
You-Learn offers meaningful, fit-for-purpose, secure content, which is age-appropriate and is not surrounded by the noise and distractions of TikTok and other platforms.
We engage a younger audience with purposeful content and tools that keep them away from the usual rabbit holes generalist social media outlets are unable (and unwilling) to control.
Why Social-Emotional learning matters
Improving with SEL
93% of young people believe social-emotional skills are critical in their preparation for future employment in the modern workplace
88% of parents say a good education goes beyond exam results
A better future
74% of teachers say skills like teamwork and communication will give their students a better chance of future job happiness
80% of employers say social-emotional skills are the most important to success, yet also the hardest to ﬁnd
Helping young people improve Social-Emotional skills
Developing an awareness and understanding of themselves, helps young people improve these social-emotional skills, which can make or break the success of their relationships and future decision-making in important interactions such as work experience, job interviews, teamwork and even leadership roles.
That’s why the first step in You-Learn is a personality quiz providing young people with insight into who they are, potential growth areas, and the exciting possibilities open to them as they embark on their career discovery journey.
Gaining the Advantage in STEM-based Careers
STEM knowledge, skills and competencies will take you only so far. No scientist, technologist or mathematician works alone. Social-emotional skills, such as self awareness, self-management and social awareness enable them to apply all they have learnt in understanding the world and solving real world problems.
STEM demands a creative, enquiring and critical mind. It requires effective listening and communication within diverse teams, and being open to the unique specialism each team member brings to the STEM table. By pairing STEM with social-emotional skills, learning impact is optimised2.
So, the STEM workforce succeeds when it works together, developing the innovative global solutions needed to address new and old diseases, famine, climate change and many other important global challenges.
Developing Skills for Life
Social contact is the number one topic of interest for most teenagers, including relationships with friends, teachers, classmates, parents, siblings, sports teammates, work peers and supervisors. Successful relationships all depend heavily upon efective communication and appropriate behaviour in diferent situations.
Developing an awareness and understanding of ‘self’ helps young people to acquire and improve the social-emotional skills that can make or break the success of their relationships and decision-making.
Learning to recognise and use these skills is a route to the conscious adaptability that can help teenagers to achieve positive outcomes in relationships of all kinds, from friendship groups to getting along with teachers, to important interactions when they are older such as work experience, job interviews, teamwork and leadership roles.
The part of our brains that contributes to social-emotional development – the pre-frontal cortex – continues to develop until the early to mid 20s, so the processes that this area of the brain handles can change dramatically during the teenage years. These include social cognition, self-regulation, cognitive control and emotional regulation.
For teenagers in secondary school or college, these mental and social aspects are often the most challenging. Social-emotional skills development, therefore, needs learning support.
Fortunately, these processes are potentially open to conscious adaptation. Understanding, trying out and practising social-emotional skills can help teenagers to achieve more positive outcomes in the day-to-day life challenges they face, today and for their future adult years.
While SEL is not a new concept in education, what is new to education – and to the world of work – is the dramatic shift to online delivery resulting from the pandemic. And that is here to stay.
Remote online schooling – delivered via mobile for hundreds of millions – has become a critical path to learning around the world, resulting in blended learning rapidly becoming a mainstream educational paradigm.
It has also spawned a crop of online K12 schools attracting students and parents who see and feel the beneﬁts. In higher education too, online lectures and tutorials have become the norm rather than the exception for the majority of undergraduates and many postgraduates.
