Utilize the Kikori platform to develop social and emotional intelligence in both students and teachers to build a student-centered classroom learning community.
Use Kikori to prioritize equity and student-centered learning by fostering social and emotional intelligence. Through Social-Emotional Learning (SEL), Kikori empowers both educators and students to develop healthy identities, manage emotions, and build supportive relationships while making responsible decisions. Develop a professional learning program that uses Kikori’s activities and strategies to improve academics, increase a sense of belonging, and deepen relationships throughout your district.
Serving as the central hub for your professional learning program, the BL Lab is where professional learning happens. Teachers can use the BL Lab to access actionable social-emotional learning resources and strategies, work with their instructional coach, and measure their progress towards their desired classroom outcomes.
Instructional leaders gain access to a large library of social-emotional learning self-directed courses to give PLCs ongoing opportunities for learning and to support new teachers with additional training any time throughout the school year.
Administrators gain a comprehensive view of the status of their professional learning programs and easy access to learning progress across multiple cohorts of educators.
Designed to give your team the chance to collaborate and normalize new concepts, language, and social-emotional learning practices, our in-person launch experiences bring together the teachers, instructional leaders, and building leaders that will work together to implement social-emotional learning practices using Kikori throughout the district.
Launching Social-Emotional Learning with Kikori | In-Person
Educators can identify inequities in educational practices while identifying ways to take steps in the classroom and school to further learn about ourselves as educators and our students.
Teachers engage in job-embedded Coaching with a specially matched coach to receive personalized support for enacting social-emotional learning practices using Kikori. Using the Try-Measure-Learn method, coaches guide teachers to plan lessons, try new strategies, and measure the impact for students.
Know what effective social-emotional learning looks like in the classroom, how to support teachers to achieve their target outcomes, and build your ongoing learning plan for continuous improvement. Learning Walks are a non-evaluative tool that helps instructional leaders identify and celebrate new social-emotional teaching practices that use Kikori.
Virtual Workshops offer teachers the opportunity to collaborate and build an actionable plan to use Kikori to create the social-emotional learning changes you want to see in classrooms. With the guidance of a facilitator, teachers will set goals, identify manageable next steps, and create a path to work towards their chosen outcomes.
