No Child Alone

Project Overview

The goal of the No Child Alone project combines the expertise of Dr. Antle's child-centred design research with Curatio Networks Inc and the Burnaby School Board (Canada) to design and develop a COVID-19 support system for children (10-18 years) and their teachers, parents and caregivers. The No Child Alone-Curatio system will enable those who care about children's learning, development and mental health to effectively and efficiently work with children to overcome social-emotional and mental health challenges related to the impact of COVID-19 in Canada, and internationally.
