Harness the power of Virtual reality to connect the world through social-emotional learning.

Bring the world together with Kinful.

Kinful is a social-emotional learning curriculum that teaches students what binds humanity together is greater than what divides us. We do this by pairing classrooms around the world to partake in a virtual intercultural exchange where students share self-created virtual reality (360° immersive video) with their distant counterparts. These exchanges serve as the platform for the Kinful curriculum — focused on developing social-emotional learning competencies that foster intercultural understanding and academic achievement.

Why Social-Emotional Learning


Why Social-Emotional Learning


 

The Solution

The Problem

In our globalized world, humans have become more connected than ever before. Yet, with no framework in place to foster mutual understanding, social divisions remain entrenched. Students need opportunities to develop interpersonal skills that transcend cultural boundaries.

 

 

Social-emotional learning (SEL) through intercultural exchanges. In addition to promoting academic achievement, SEL is the key to interpersonal and intercultural understanding. Social-emotional learning competencies — social awareness, self-awareness, relationship skills, etc. — are fundamental attributes needed for academic success and global leadership in the 21st century.

Unique Curriculum

The Kinful curriculum uses virtual reality to unlock social-emotional competencies through experiential learning. Through virtual reality, students are immersed in the perspective of others, and afterwards are guided through in-classroom exercises to discuss the experience.

 

Social-Emotional Learning Competencies

SEL emphasizes mastery of 5 core skills that prepare students for social success, as well as boost academic achievement.

  • Self-awareness
  • Self-management
  • Social awareness
  • Relationship skills
  • Responsible decision-making
