Shoutout to Owen Matchim for a great presentation on De-escalation this morning!

Learning lots about self compassion with Emily Best. The quote “being well to do well” really stuck with me!
So proud of these two SJB staff as they present about Wellness Wednesday at the IgnitEd conference today!
A great presentation from Sean and Kelly this morning about combatting homophobia and transphobia. I liked that they start with the idea of not changing students' minds but requiring them to change their behaviour, at least! And it was great to see examples of what has worked in their practice - as well as what has not worked!
Having so much fun today catching up with people I haven’t seen in a while!
Love the beautiful drawings and messages on the snack bags. Wonderful idea!

You can choose one of three ways to display your messages onto a facility TV monitor.
  1. HDMI CORD – Some schools will access their Kindness eWall on a laptop and run an HDMI cord to their TV monitor.
  2. CAST – Some schools will access their Kindness eWall via a tablet or device and will cast it to their TV monitor via a Chromecast or Apple TV device.
  3. SMART TV WITH INTERNET BROWSER – If your Smart TV has an Internet Browser (Samsungs), then you can place your Kindness eWall link in the browser and it will run from there.
Yes! You can edit the text of any message before Approving it.

Upon your request, we can replace your current Anonymous Submission Form with a Form from your school’s email system (ex. Google Form). This makes messages come to you with the author’s email address included, and you simply COPY/PASTE the message onto your INSTANT POST Page in order to make it live.

(Note: Because messages are submitted through your school’s email system, the Character eWall collects no data or information – making it fall within all school privacy regulations.)
We can provide your Tech Team with a simple line of code that will allow them to embed your Rotating Display of Approved Messages onto your school website, so that they are visibly scrolling whenever anyone comes to your site.
The system is set to display the 100 most recently Approved messages, as older messages start falling out of the rotation in order to make room for the newer messages. However, we can increase or decrease this number to be whatever you’d like it to be.
Your subscription includes an unlimited number of messages and an unlimited number of displays for everyone in your school for the entire length of your subscription.

In it’s default setting, your school’s Kindness eWall uses an Anonymous Submission Form in order to comply with all school privacy regulations. Therefore, though you will be able to APPROVE all submitted content before it becomes visible, you will not know who the author of the message is.

HOWEVER, upon your request, we can include a SUBMISSION FORM LOGIN which would require users to enter their email / password in order to submit a message. This would allow you to APPROVE all submitted content before it becomes visible and will also provide you with the email address of each message’s author (whether you Approve it or not).
