Developed by VOGO Voice
Kids Decisions is VOGO Voice’s contribution to the educational initiatives in the community. It is a dedicated approach brought to fruition to enable as well as enhance the development of social-emotional learning skills in children falling within the age range of 5-10. Aiming at a transference of learned skills into real-life context, the “Kids Decisions” Alexa Skill has been modeled on the precept directed towards encouraging elementary kids to explore the decision making cognitive realm with a keen sense of interest.
Rooted in the idea of social-emotional learning, the skill has the ability of drawing the child’s mind to wade through real-life context-oriented short storylines characterized by the 24 character strengths and its respective 6 virtues. The purpose here is to simulate an experiential learning experience to nurture in children an empathic sense of self and others in any given scenario. Each time the skill is invoked, the child will be introduced to a new storyline hearing after which proceeds the decision-making part.
Kids Decisions is a friendly addition to the variants of instructional modalities used for the engagement and embedding practice of SEL skills in young learners. The skill aspires to inspire kids and families as a whole and provides a scaffold to young minds who are supposedly on their own when it comes down to making a decision. VOGO Voice has delightfully chosen Ember the Dragon as the Kids Decisions emcee & mascot. To enable the skill, all you need to do is say “Alexa, enable Kids Decisions.”
