Next-Generation Communication Technology that Students Want to Use
The Social and Emotional Health of students is often a major contributor to incidents in schools. Currently, incident reporting technology available on the market are designed with the sole purpose of addressing urgent concerns and active or potential threats to student safety. These systems are important, but fail to address the core of the emotional nature of student conflicts. We at FightSong! want fix the flaws in the reporting system and reach out to students.
“If we want to change and improve the outcomes of schooling for both students and teachers, there are features of the school culture that must be changed. The efforts of policy‐makers and school principals to improve student learning in American schools have had less than the expected results education leaders need to reframe and refocus their leadership efforts”
Take Back Your Life
Co-Founder Staci Smith struggled through middle school to college with mental illness. Due to a mix of paranoia and depression and always appearing to be a ‘Amazing Student’ she never managed to overcome her anxiety and reach out to any counselors. She teamed up with her father, James, the lead software developer of Twotrees Technologies LLC., to create a secure and confidential Incident Reporting and Communication Platform. Encouraging students to comfortably start a conversation with counselors in their own school.
James was inspired by Rachel Platten’s song Fight Song, so he trademarked with permission from the artist both the company name, FightSong!®, and part of the line take back your life song. Building on this message, the entire FightSong!® App is focused on giving students the confidence they need to take back their life from bullying and conflicts.
With such a passionate team, FightSong!® quickly developed into more than an incident reporting app. It is designed around changing the students’ perception of incident reporting and what they truly want when reaching out for support. Filling a major gap in student communications with counselors and administrators, and an engaging message of empowerment and mental health advocacy.
