Future-readiness can begin as early as Kindergarten. In Xello K-2, students take an adventure around Career Town. They help Detective Jill find lost workers and thwart Ernestine McNohire's sneaky plans to build her own community on the moon!
This adventure helps students understand the variety of workers in a community. As they find the missing people, they complete tasks in that worker's career. By the end of the game, students understand the importance of each worker to a community.

Safety and Accessibility
We take data protection and privacy very seriously. Xello complies with federal requirements for data security and privacy. Advertising is not displayed within Xello, nor is data used for commercial purposes. Xello is a signatory of the Student Privacy Pledge, requiring them to uphold strict standards for safeguarding student privacy regarding the collection, maintenance, and use of student personal information.
Password and data security are important to Xello. This is why no passwords are visible in Xello for students or educators.
We use industry-standard best practices in data security. This includes using a technique called “hashing” to store all passwords. This means that once a password is encrypted, it cannot be decrypted.
As long as a student is actively working in Xello, their session will stay open. If a student doesn’t interact with Xello for 30 minutes, their session will expire. They will need to re-enter their password to continue working.
Simply moving the mouse will not keep the session active, they have to interact with the application.
The "Keep me signed in" Option
When you log in to Xello, there's an option to Keep me signed in. If you tick this box and then log in, your session won’t time out even after 30 minutes of inactivity. The next time you go to the xello.world Sign In page, you’ll be logged in automatically.
