Conversation simulator for educator training


The Kognito Conversation Platform is a conversation practice tool that addresses a variety of areas pertaining to physical, emotional, and mental health. The user engages in interactive role-play with virtual humans to grow skills and knowledge in areas of social-emotional learning. The product can be purchased by a school or individual, and can be used by school officials, teachers, and students.


For PK-12 institutions, Kognito offers courses in fostering safe and supportive schools. Each simulation in the PK-12 series is differentiated to fit the needs of either elementary, middle, or high school audiences.

The content of the online modules simulates real life scenarios and behavior patterns. For example, one course simulates a conversation that a teacher might have with a student who is being severely bullied by classmates. Conversations and scenarios are built around a research-based behavioral model which simulates the cause-and-effect relationship between the user’s decision and the avatar’s response. The progression of the conversation will adapt and shift dependent on how the user chooses to react and respond to the situation. As users move through the program, they receive personalized feedback and suggestions for improvement. Users receive medals and badges for success in mastering skills.

Before and after the course, the user takes an online survey in order to measure changes in perception, knowledge, and skill.

The program can be used in a school setting either as training for educators, or as part of the curriculum. Each module is accompanied by lesson plans for teachers.


School administrators or individual teachers purchase access to courses as a yearly license. Purchasers can contact Kognito to receive a pricing quote based on their specific school site or classroom needs.
