Evidence Based Approach

A 2018 evaluation undertaken by StoryQ on The 5000 Days Project participants show that the video journaling process is already helping kids.


Listen here to 5000 Days Project participants discuss their experience using the StoryQ as a place to process their stories.


What Educators are saying… 

By being asked to be self-analytical, students began to process everything that was happening to them in a much healthier and productive way. Instead of being victims of their problems, they were more likely to become masters of them…
— School Principal

Justin Robinson of GGS in Australia shares his observations on the values of verbal journaling and how the StoryQ is benefiting his students.


Until the 31st May 2019, all eligible schools can join the National Pilot Program providing Teacher and Student access to The StoryQ technology at a subsidised rate.
