Case Studies

One

School Profile: Small (~450 students) independent day school with day and boarding students, grades 6-12

Issue: The school recently implemented a “bring your own device” blended learning program for middle school and high school students. Students were struggling with organization and managing distractions. Faculty and staff lacked clear guidelines for strategy and use, and parents were frustrated.

How We Helped: We conducted interviews, observed classrooms and provided one-on-one consulting time to coach and train faculty and staff. We created student surveys regarding social media use and assisted in implementing school-wide social media policies, while also presenting to faculty, middle and high school students and parents on issues surrounding social media wellness, time management, organization and executive functioning.

Ana has connected with my high school son in a way I never expected… She convinced him to go to the library every night without his phone and have a specific study period. She also was able to convince him to change his other study habits, something we had been unable to accomplish. She’s been a cheerleader for him too, encouraging him to explore his strengths on campus, and challenge himself… Whenever anything has come up of issue, Ana has been quick to jump in and help in whatever way she [can].
