How it Works

 

ChatterHigh is a gamified content engagement platform used by students and teachers across Canada and the USA. Students receive a question that they answer by visiting the linked real-world resource. The activity can be done in class or at home, and it is self-marking so teachers can easily monitor progress.

Our Mindful Modules cover a range of topics for life after high school. These modules help learners develop core competencies by using an active learning format that is proven to increase hope and awareness.
