A Comprehensive Social Emotional Learning Curriculum:

What is the Turbo Toolkit?

The evidence-based Turbo Toolkit sits at the heart of ACT | Mawi Learning’s social emotional learning curriculum, which consists of dynamic mental models, frameworks, and tools that bring SEL to life through everyday application — like, growth mindset and relationship building.

Turbo Tools helps teachers integrate core SEL competencies into their classrooms with ease. As students learn to apply SEL, they develop a strong awareness of their inner worth and power, driving improvements in academics and personal well-being.

What is Turbo?

Turbo is the animating force that makes Mawi Learning’s Turbo Tools come alive. Turbo represents our power to act, or to harness what SEL researchers call “agency.”

Hitting the Turbo Button is like accessing a “power up” in real life. Teachers and students learn that we all have our own personal Turbo Button, which can be activated at any time to ignite our inner power and leverage other Turbo Tools for growth.

The Turbo Button empowers us to take action and to operate within our locus of control. It prompts us to be agents of change and work toward our goals. Turbo is choosing action over inaction, energy over passivity, agency over helplessness.

The Turbo Button is a simple tool with mighty influence.
