We are creating a tool which aligns experiential education activities with teaching and social emotional standards which educators can use to meet their students' unique needs and transform their classroom.
Our vision is that experiential education activities will be accessible to educators around the world thus providing all youth the opportunity to develop the cognitive, social and emotional skills needed to thrive.
What's In a Name?
Kikori is named after the largest undammed river in Papua New Guinea, one of the least explored lands on earth. Linguistically, Papua New Guinea is the world's most diverse country, with more than 850 native tongues located within its boundaries.
Similar to the Kikori River which flows through this land connecting people who may speak, act and think differently, the Kikori app will be a connecting force for those who use it.
And as the flowing river is always changing...
So will the Kikori app help students, teachers and classrooms around the globe change and grow
