Social and emotional learning (SEL) is the process through which children and adults acquire and effectively apply the knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary to understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions.

Six Seconds, a global network supporting people to create positive change, is partnering with Facebook and the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence to launch a major initiative to help create more positive, healthy schools.

The project, called “InspirED”, includes online resources created by teens and educators for their peers, as well as an award to recognise projects that bring social emotional learning to schools.

The InspirED Educator Toolkit includes over 20 practical, effective online lessons for teachers wanting to foster school environments where children learn from their emotions, rather than keeping them hidden.

Would you implement this approach on your workplace or school? Is connecting with our emotions productive for children and adults that wish to have a deeper connection to their learning process? Let us know how you feel about this in the comment box.
