Overview

Learn how teachers can break down the barriers between kids that create destructive behavior, utilize contemporary culture to make learning meaningful for today's youth, and foster in students the optimal neural state for receiving and retaining information

Traditional classroom models have been shown to inhibit learning and disengage today's students from the joy of education. Social Emotional Learning provides a much-needed solution to these perennial problems. In this dialogue, Goleman and Lucas investigate project-based curricula that utilize high technology to excite and motivate students. They explain why Social Intelligence and critical thought are necessary skills for the 21st century, and how cultivating these abilities in school unlocks students' inherent love of learning.
