Check in solution for schools to monitor student wellbeing and increase student outcomes

The Need to Support Young People in Their Journey of Self-Awareness.

The need to support young people to connect and develop their social and emotional wellbeing is crucial for flourishing lives.

iyarn is designed to do just that. We work with public and private schools across Australia who have already checked in over 1,000,000 times. Schools using iyarn are enhancing their social-emotional learning (SEL) and make data-driven decisions to improve their young people's wellbeing.

What is iyarn?

iyarn is a digital platform for students, teachers, and staff to ‘check in’ on their wellbeing and a tool for monitoring and managing critical areas such as sleep, fitness, friends, and mental health. iyarn has been operating in schools and organisations across Australia since 2018 to promote and support wellbeing and increase student outcomes.

Student check ins are fast and simple, taking no more than 30 seconds and are designed to be repeated on a weekly, fortnightly or monthly basis, creating a powerful, regular conversation starter.

How does an iyarn check in work?

Teachers and school staff identify and customise which ‘segments’ the students will be checking in on. Segments can range from health and sleep to friends and school, giving teachers a holistic understanding of their students.

It takes students 30 seconds to complete a check in using a sliding scale to rate how they are going in each of these areas from low to high. Using colourful graphics, check in data provides a clear visual of how each student is travelling as well as an overview of how cohorts and schools are tracking overall.

Over time, this data provides school staff with powerful trends and insights from the students. By tracking the important aspects that impact student wellbeing and outcomes, you can focus on providing tailored support when needed.
