World of Emotions on a Smartphone

Wisdom: The World of Emotions is an adaptive social–emotional learning game offered by Better Kids for children aged 4–8. The app, available for iOS and Android devices, includes an SEL curriculum, SEL transitions, and SEL activities to support students’ emotional wellbeing. With both virtual and hands-on lesson versions, teachers can provide low-preparation, high-quality SEL instruction to their students, regardless of the classroom setting. Wisdom focuses on CASEL’s five core SEL competencies: self-awareness, social awareness, relationship skills, responsible decision-making, and self-management. As they play Wisdom, children will focus on learning with augmented reality breathing and mindfulness, and identify emotions through facial expressions, body language, voice intonations, trigger events, and physiological reactions. They will also learn to express their feelings using newly acquired vocabulary, enabling them to resolve conflicts, regulate their emotions, and make responsible decisions. Parent prompts let students practice their new skills at home, and SchoolWork for iPad integration lets teachers monitor their students’ progress in real time. Cost: Free app, with options for in-app purchases; schoolwide licenses are also offered.
