School Day Launches Assignments Integration with Microsoft Teams


Helsinki, Finland—November 30, 2021—School Day, a leading K-12 education social-emotional learning (SEL) and wellbeing company, today announced the availability of a new capability in Microsoft Teams. Educators can now assign School Day as part of a class assignment in Teams. This enables a more seamless and engaging experience for educators and students to use School Day as part of every school week.

School Day is a Microsoft Teams app, built using Microsoft Azure, Microsoft Graph APIs, and the Microsoft Graph Toolkit. With this app, schools can monitor—and respond to—students' social and emotional needs. The app asks students to respond to simple statements like, "I feel happy" or "I am eager to learn new things." It then aggregates responses at the classroom level in a simple, fun way and provides key insights to teachers while protecting students' privacy. 

Mika Kasanen, Co-Founder and CEO at School Day, emphasizes how educators are confronted by the overwhelming impact of the pandemic on student mental health and wellbeing. Social-emotional learning (SEL) plays a critical role now. Solutions like School Day can make a meaningful difference for both educators and students. "This year has been all about educators for us at School Day. Educators need to juggle many things with very limited time. We are excited about the class assignment in Teams for student voice, insights, and SEL discussions in classrooms," Kasanen explains. 

"With Assignments in Teams, customers around the world can easily design, create and assign tasks throughout the school week," said Leif Brenne, Principal Program Manager, Microsoft Education. "We look forward to seeing School Day integrate and evolve further with Teams EDU."
