Swivl Launches Engageable, a Real-Time Attention Management Tool That Empowers Educators and Students to Navigate AI Transformation

Share This Post

The new solution merges mindfulness and classroom management methods to foster better attention for students and teachers.

According to Gloria Mark, Ph.D., attention spans are declining, averaging just 47 seconds on any screen. This is making it harder than ever for educators to develop their students' interests in learning. Now AI is about to make that even harder by putting the cognitive challenges that used to require sustained attention a click away. Swivl, a future-ready edtech company with a suite of reflective tools, is addressing this challenge with its latest offering, Engageable, a real-time attention management tool with embedded mindfulness.

"AI's impact on education will be 10x larger and faster than the internet," said Brian Lamb, CEO and co-founder of Swivl. "We believe that creating an intentional process for how students manage their attention is a necessary part of the education community's response to AI."

Engageable helps users take on the attentional resistance of developing new interests in a more mindful and measured way. In the classroom, when a user starts the Pulse timer, they are prompted to take a deep breath and constructively recommit their attention in short intervals, tracking the ensuing time spent by activity. This helps build awareness of attention and how they are developing interests. Then, Engageable provides options to Recharge whenever stress or anxiety gets in the way, or to Record actions and reflections when it makes sense.

"With Engageable, my eighth-grade students are able to take a much-needed break while doing deeper work. In merely two minutes, the Recharge exercises melt away their stress and anxiety, and boost their mood and productivity," said Andrea Trudeau, Middle School Librarian & Ph.D. Candidate.

"AI has the potential to lift us to new heights if we manage this transition well," continued Lamb. "We know from our work observing thousands of classrooms that human capacity depends on how you manage attention before natural interest develops instead of just after. It's teaching the ability to engage, not just be engaged; that makes the difference." 

Signing up for and using Engageable is free with affordable plans for power users and institutions. For more information, visit https://getengageable.com/

Hanna Interpreting Services Awarded Comparably’s Best Company for Work-Life Balance

Hanna Interpreting Services, a premier language services provider, is proud to announce its recognition by Comparably as one of the best companies for work-life balance. This honor is a testament to the company’s unwavering commitment to employee well-being and its innovative approach to fostering a harmonious work environment.

Comparably’s accolade assesses factors such as employee satisfaction with work-life balance, average hours worked per day, lunch break lengths, and overall feelings of burnout. Hanna Interpreting Services' dedication to creating an environment that melds productivity with personal time has made it stand out in this evaluation.

A significant contributor to this balance is the company's hybrid working model, where employees merge the best of both worlds by working remotely for three weeks and in the office for one week every month. This flexibility allows team members to maintain their personal lives while still fostering in-person collaboration. Hanna also ranked among the top 35% of companies for diversity and in the top 40% for gender balance.

"It's a balance we've been striving to achieve, especially in these dynamic times," says President Tom Elias Hanna. "We understand the challenges presented by both remote work and the need to be in-office."

September is a monumental month for Hanna Interpreting Services. In addition to the Comparably award, the company celebrated its 13th anniversary on September 9, marking over a decade of industry leadership and commitment to bridging linguistic barriers. The month also saw the inauguration of a brand-new office space, showcasing the company’s dedication to growth and serving as a hub for innovation and team collaboration.

As Hanna Interpreting Services continues to evolve and set benchmarks in the industry, the core values remain consistent: a commitment to bridging language barriers, a dedication to employee well-being, and a vision to be the most trusted name in language services.

Founded in 2010 by mother and son duo Jennifer Hanna and Tom Elias Hanna in their garage, Hanna has grown to more than 70 employees, served 1.1 million clients to date in 250+ languages, and has sponsored countless outreach events to serve the local community.
