Meet ThinkingApp and reThinkIt!: Real-time “early detection systems” to help make schools safer.
Schools are no longer the safe havens students deserve. According to a study published in March 2018, 1 in 4 students feel unsafe at school – and it’s not just bullying. So how do you know your students are safe at school and mentally healthy?
With reThinkIt!, the system evaluates, learns and provides in-depth, real-time personality insights about often complex issues regarding a student's emotional and mental state, so you can quickly assess students' needs and provide appropriate interventions.
100% audible trail for parents and schools
Parent-teacher conferences are more informative now that teachers, counselors, principals and SRO's have productive, first-hand information from the student to share with parents and caregivers. reThinkIt! is proven to be a powerful tool to preserve money from improved student attendance and teacher retention.
Counselors and teachers are more effective
De-escalates classroom drama so you spend less time on classroom management and more time on academic teaching. Counselors can now more quickly address what’s going on with real-time, in-depth personality insights about complex issues regarding a students’ emotional and mental state.
Students reveal 5x more information to adults
Proven to show statistically significant reduction in emotional distress, reThinkIt! also gathers 5 times more information from students about what’s on their minds than they share face-to-face with adults.* It bypasses the “code of silence” uncovering negative intentions and alerting adults to potentially dangerous behaviors.

For PreK to 2nd grade, ThinkingApp is “Time-Out Reimagined”
Solving the complex discipline issues associated with, well, being a kindergartener, ThinkingApp allows a teacher to quickly assign a disruptive student one or many interactive ebooks that fill the ‘time out’ with behavior-specific content – smoothly and efficiently – reducing valuable time away from the rest of the class. In both English and Spanish, ThinkingApp uses social emotional learning (SEL), trauma-informed and restorative justice principles.
For 3rd to 12th graders, reThinkIt! is “Advice Reimagined”
reThinkIt! supports solving complex issues for adolescents’ social emotional (SEL) well-being. Using evidence-based, personalized and predictive principles, reThinkIt!, in both English and Spanish, supplements school counseling and behavior management through a virtual mentor who guides the student through SEL, trauma-informed, restorative justice-based self-help interactive modules. When on-demand counseling is needed, a certified virtual counselor communicates via text conversations that any student can navigate on their own during school hours.

OPTIMIZES TEACHERS VALUABLE TIME
ThinkingApp spares suspensions of your PreK to second grade students. It easily allows teachers to quickly assign any student needing a short time out an incident-specific ebook tailored to that child’s needs. This avoids the typical mass classroom disruption generally associated when a youngster acts out – saving teachers time and allowing smoother class continuity.
MEETING FEDERAL AND STATE MANDATES
Today, the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) mandates every US school to show at least one non-academic social and emotional learning (SEL) outcome per student. reThinkIt! and ThinkingApp are built to provide districts with the actionable metrics to both comply with the ESSA mandate and address students’ needs sooner.
“This is nice. You not only help fix the problem at hand, you guide students through how to address and be prepared for future issues to avoid the same things from happening again.”
