How It Works
We Teach People How to Make Friends!
Help Zack, Emma, Sam, and Katie solve social problems! Each fully-animated, interactive webisode targets one of many skills children and young adults need to learn in order to develop meaningful relationships and successfully navigate our social world.
Thought bubbles containing images and words appear over the characters’ heads at key decision points during a webisode. Each thought bubble depicts an action that the character will take if the thought bubble is selected.
The Menu button allows the adult or user to replay the webisode from the beginning, choose a different webisode, turn the Teaching Tips on and off, return to the Main Menu, or resume the webisode.
The Pause/Resume/Replay button allows the adult to pause and resume the webisode at any time to provide an opportunity to discuss a “teachable moment” with the user. During decision points, this button will also allow the user or adult to replay the preceding portion of the webisode.
The user will help each character resolve social situations at various locations around town including: a cafe, a fire station, an animal rescue, a music store, and a park. *New locations arriving in 2013!
Throughout each webisode, Teaching Tips appear with valuable information for the adult who is working with the user. Teaching Tips may be turned on and off at any time.
