Your Own Daily Activator (YODA)

YODA, Your Own Daily Activator, is an alert system that tracks the social and emotional needs of learners and, in response, activates personal support networks. YODA prompts learners’ social and emotional support through multiple data streams such as class and workload schedules, teacher interactions, and phone and in-person check-ins. For example, a student studying for the SATs receives fresh fruit and vegetables courtesy of YODA.
