"I am thrilled to share my experience with Akra Tech, a company that has been instrumental in my EdTech startup, We Intervene, since July 2020. Working with Ashraf has been a pleasure, as I appreciated not having to spend time finding and vetting designers and developers. This allowed me to focus on self-funding and developing my business. Ashraf's dedication to understanding my needs and providing valuable insights made him a true partner in the project. His team was also incredibly responsive and proactive in keeping me informed of their progress." Read more

Schoolwide Strategy

Establishes a holistic view of the students in your school community by utilizing both non-academic and academic data

Organize notes, referrals, and follow up in one location

  • Student support staff from working in isolation to keep track of the needs of students, families, and colleagues.
  • Keeps track of notes and an important follow-up to ensure no child gets left behind
  • Gives School Personnel one location to text, email and print resources for students and families
  • Saves valuable time by reducing the time-intensive process of finding the “right" resource

Leverage data reports determining social-emotional needs

With this application, you will be able to tie the things you know to be true with the data informing you of that truth.

We have prepared Wireframes and Front end design using Adobe XD, Photoshop in coming up with the initial design and mockup and followed by further design revisions 

  • Design graphic user interfaces elements, like menus and tabs
  • Illustrate design ideas using storyboards, process flows
  • Built page elements such as custom graphics and illustrations
  • Developed UI mockups and prototypes that clearly illustrate how sites function and look like
  • Layout adjustments based on user feedback

Has the problem statement of the client been addressed???

The following are the changes that have occurred at the school since the Student Counseling portal has been implemented:

Many students experienced mental health issues such as anxiety, depression, and stress. Having our counseling portal helped the students with a safe space to discuss their concerns with a trained counselor.

Students who experienced academic difficulties (having trouble with a particular course or managing their time) are now using our counseling portal to receive academic support through counseling and connecting them with the right resources.

Our counseling platform provided students with a private, secure environment where they may share their worries without being judged or condemned.

Our student counseling portal provides students with the support and resources they need to succeed academically and personally, making it an important addition to any school.

  1. Trust and Confidentiality: Establishing trust and ensuring the confidentiality of student information in an online setting is a significant challenge. Students may have concerns about the security of their personal data and the privacy of their counseling interactions
  2. Resource Diversity and Relevance: The online counseling portal may lack a diverse range of resources, materials, and tools that address the specific needs and challenges faced by students and guardians.
  3. Engagement with Multilingual Students: New York City is a linguistically diverse environment, and the portal may face challenges in effectively engaging with students who speak languages other than English. Ensuring multilingual support is crucial to inclusivity and reaching a broader student population.
  4. Inadequate Utilization of Available Services: The portal may offer a wide range of counseling services, resources, and tools, but students/guardians may not be aware of them or might not know how to access and use them effectively.
  1. Trust and Confidentiality: Implement stringent privacy policies and procedures to safeguard student information.
  2. Resource Diversity and Relevance: Expand the range of resources available on the online counseling portal to cater to the specific needs and challenges faced by students and guardians. Collaborate with counselors, educators, Virtual Assistants, and relevant stakeholders to develop resources that align with the educational and personal goals and address the unique experiences of students in the New York City school system.
  3. Multilingual Support: Offer the counseling portal in multiple languages to accommodate the diverse linguistic needs of students. Provide multilingual counseling services and ensure that resources are available in various languages commonly spoken in the city.
  4. Personalized Outreach and Support: Implement personalized outreach strategies to engage students based on their unique needs and concerns. Utilize data analytics to identify trends and patterns, allowing counselors to reach out proactively to students who may require assistance.
  1. The application was approved and certified by NYCDOE Cloud Review & Compliance Board. Implemented a robust authentication system to ensure user privacy and confidentiality. The portal utilizes secure call, sms, and email functionality, and resource libraries to deliver counseling services virtually.
  2. Virtual Assistants and other school faculties will align the resources and providers based on the students/guardian’s personal and educational goals by communicating unique resources via Call, Email, and SMS or sending Survey Responses to address their needs. The portal utilizes secure audio conferencing, chat functionality, and resource libraries to deliver counseling services virtually.
  3. The application allows the School Faculties to communicate with the students multi-lingually.
  4. The application allows the schools to send out personalized surveys to get insight into students’/guardian’s needs and concerns. Based on the survey responses the school can align the students/guardians with the resources available with personalized positive messages.
