PocketConfidant for Universities
PocketConfidant was created to provide anyone with a confidant in their pocket, a confidential assistant designed to enable individuals to have real-time private conversations facilitating their own self-expression, awareness, reflection and learning.
For Universities and Educational organizations, PocketConfidant supports students on their daily academic path, listens to and questions concerns during transitions, challenges and student-life-related stress.
What is it?
PocketConfidant is a technology designed to provide individuals with a space where they can step-back, reflect and become more aware of challenging situations, their desires and goals.
It is not a replacement for human interaction, friends, parents, or counselors. It is an assistant available 24/7 to be used when needed to support wellbeing, engagement, learning and when challenging or difficult issues emerge.
What are the benefits?
24/7 self-coaching for all
Provide support to your entire student population. Understand how students talk about their challenges and desires; improve your staff’s ability to support them through meaningful conversations. Develop a new dynamic environment for skill-building, creativity and wellbeing.
Security & Confidentiality
Our first engagement is ethical. You can’t track what users said. The data is protected, encrypted, depersonalized, not shared nor sold. We comply with the upcoming Data Protection regulations. Ask us for more details.
Measure data, not people
As a company, we give you access to macro trends and behavioral analysis so you can follow the “voice” of your ecosystem while maintaining the confidentiality of all students, faculty and staff using PocketConfidant.
Support Educational Initiatives
Students can share their conversations with anyone they choose. In this way PocketConfidant supports collective initiatives such as peer to peer assistance and mentoring, improving access to counselors and advisors. PocketConfidant also facilitates requests for human coaching and counseling.
Learning & Change
For awareness, reflection, critical-thinking, problem solving, emotional support, resilience building, helping to make learning sticky and applicable to concrete goals.
Engagement & Wellbeing
The first step to engage people is to open a dialogue and talk to them. To maintain engagement, the key is to keep communicating, build rapport and accompany them. Wellbeing improves when you have space and time for yourself; the opportunity to pause, talk about your thoughts and feelings and become aware of what is important.
Dashboard for strategy and prevention
Use the dashboard to learn from data. Learn about usage metrics and understand the macro trends that are contributing to students’ “voice”. Inform your strategy and understand which actions to take to drive alignment, student success, wellbeing and engagement.
