Little Light

About this Project:

Little Light is an app designed for students in grades 1-5. The app allows you to create and track goals in a fun way. You can also play games too. Students will be able to login to this app after school time. The app also lets parent see their child's progress.

The Staten Island School of Civic Leadership is a Leader in Me, Lighthouse School. During our interviews we discovered many students were having trouble studying. We also realized tracking goals and student progress should happen outside of the classroom. Our app, Little Light, helps students grow and track their accomplishments in a fun, game-playing way.

We hope you enjoy our presentation!

Feedback from the Judges:

👏 Library Technical Assistant III at New York Public Library — Emoti-Con Judge
I like that this app is allowed to open after school so that it doesn't interfere with the student's school day. The parents being able to see the child's progress with their goals is also a plus. I like how in the slides you showed us the old draft of things and the new. Keep up the good work!

👏 Operations Manager at Pockets Change — Emoti-Con Judge
I really appreciate the concept of using goal tracking to keep parents informed about their child's progress. It would be fascinating to explore ways to enhance interactivity and foster learning within this framework. The reading tracker is an excellent feature, and I'm genuinely curious to witness the future development of games that nurture valuable skills.

👏 Engineer at Engineering — Emoti-Con Judge
I like that you are creating a tool for the students to learn AND for the parents to be informed if their students need additional time or tutoring in certain areas. It will be interesting to see how you expand the student content for learning- what topics and games and content. But the idea to create an after school tool, with goals and visibility to parents, is a very good one!
