Carefully designed on the 24 character strengths, Kids Decisions presents short storylines that reflect real-life scenarios by creating a simulated environment for the kids to practice. The key intent here being to drive vicarious learning as kids internalize, subconsciously process and understand how to make sensible choices and think rationally, as we know children encounter diverse conflicting occasions, most of which trigger negative emotions and radically influence their behavior; much of which are prone to happen while they are in the playground, lunchroom, hallway or just about anywhere.
VOGO Voice sees the Amazon Alexa EdTech Challenge as a fruitful collaboration that can seed experiential learning among children both within the educational domain as well as outside the everyday classroom setting. The formative functional base for social and emotional interactions is known to be derived from procedural knowledge, that being so Kids Decisions has been iteratively designed to strengthen the procedural basis of knowledge by offering relevant cues that the learner can potentially pick up on while facing problematic situations.
Kids Decisions can be that friendly addition to different instructional modalities that yearns to open students to experience situations and grasp perspectives which they would not have access to otherwise. The void where the scaffold of teachers and parents can’t be extended, that’s where our smart speaker skill drawing on an experiential approach can help students to manage their own impulses, develop reflective abilities and make respectful choices by opening their minds to a more self-evaluative stance.
Encouraging children an internal reflection of their own emotions alongside acquiring a better perception of others’ behavior will help them develop positive and empathic communication in any given situation. Wherever they are, they are on their own when it comes to making a critical choice no matter how least the gravity of that choice is, it is critical in their mind as they confront it in the seat of emotions.
