Celebrating Clayful's CODiE Nomination: A Testament to Student Wellness Innovation

Clayful's CODiE Awards nomination recognizes its ground-breaking approach to student wellness.

We are thrilled to announce Clayful's nomination for the distinguished Software and Information Industry Association (SIIA) CODiE Award in the Wellness Platform for School Districts and Educational Communities category. This recognition underlines Clayful's pioneering work in revolutionizing student wellness in remote learning environments through their technology-based, research-driven approach.

Transforming Student Wellness with Clayful

Clayful has been breaking new ground in student wellness by providing a holistic, innovative, and tech-empowered solution. The platform pairs students with professionally trained Clayful Coaches who employ proven therapeutic strategies like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Motivational Interviewing (MI).

What sets Clayful apart is the incorporation of the latest research on social-emotional and mental wellness into every lesson, activity, and resource. All of these resources are further aligned with state mental health & CASEL standards, ensuring a comprehensive and effective approach to student well-being.

Integration and Access: Key to Clayful’s Success

One of the significant factors contributing to Clayful's CODiE nomination is its seamless integration with existing school systems. The Clayful app is designed to be easily accessible on any device, allowing it to meet students where they're at and serve as a crucial part of a school's care continuum.

Plus, Clayful Coaches act as a first line of defense - so if they identify a student who is in need of additional support, Clayful and the school can work in partnership to ensure students' needs are met.

Impactful Results: Positive Feedback from Students and Teachers

The effectiveness of Clayful’s innovative approach is evident from the overwhelmingly positive feedback received from students. Students have reported feeling more ready to learn, safer at school, and more in control of their emotions after interacting with a Clayful Coach. Here are some testimonials from students:

  • "After chatting, I felt ready to learn and more confident. This coach was the best! They helped me with my writer's block."
  • "Thank you so much for helping me get through this. I don’t know what I would do without Clayful."
  • "Thanks, this conversation taught me how to keep cheering up and hope."

Teachers have also observed the platform's positive impact. By serving as an extension of the counseling team, Clayful has helped increase staff capacity and reduce the risk of emotional burnout, all without the need for additional training.

Prioritizing Privacy and Security

Clayful’s commitment to user privacy and security is another reason for its nomination. The platform adheres to COPPA and FERPA regulations, and has implemented robust security measures to protect user data and privacy.

Effective Reporting for Better Understanding

With its granular and flexible reporting, Clayful provides schools with valuable insights into what students are experiencing. This data-driven approach enables schools to improve their students' wellness effectively.

Evidence-Based Commitment

Clayful’s commitment to evidence-based solutions is further cemented by its selection to participate in Learn Platforms’ Evidence Benchmark Research in collaboration with the Jacobs Foundation. You can read the full report here.
