What is Mightifier?
Mightifier is a positive education program helping students to master social and emotional skills. Regular use of Mightifier app in the classroom or during remote learning creates a safe and encouraging learning environment, and reduces stress and decreases bullying.
At the core of Mightifier is their "rounds". A round can consist of anywhere from 1-3 of the following options, which the teacher will set up and then the students will complete:
- Strength Feedback Round
In the Strength Feedback Round, students are asked a question about a specific student. The question is created by the teacher and the pairing of the students can be randomly assigned or manually chosen by the teacher. The students then select the strengths that apply to their paired student (these strength options are also selected by the teacher). Then students are required to write some short feedback about the student before submitting.
- Wellbeing Pulse
In the Wellbeing Pulse, students answer 10 questions about how they feel, how they relate to their classmates, if they are bullied, and things like that (using star ratings, smiley faces, and sliders). They are also given the opportunity to request a meeting with the teacher.
With this exercise, students are asked who they would want to work with on a project, at which point they select another student from the list of all students. The resulting Page 2 of 5selections are shown as a sociogram map, allowing you to quickly see if any students are becoming isolated from the rest of the classmates (nobody ever picks them).
