Promote innovation in education
Spotlight: Social & Emotional Learning
The COVID-19 pandemic has renewed a global discussion of the importance of schools and teachers for supporting childrens’ social and emotional learning. Significant disruptions to schooling around the world caused by the COVID-19 pandemic have impacted learning for more than 1.5 billion students, revealing gaps in education systems and showing us critical areas that require focus. In an unprecedented way, the global pandemic has highlighted the importance of building social and emotional skills to help children thrive in school, the workplace, and life.
In response to these challenges, policymakers, school administrators, and teachers are working to reconceptualize approaches to teaching and learning that help students develop skills for setting goals, managing behavior, and building relationships, within and beyond the classroom. In order for education systems to truly develop the broad set of competencies young people need to thrive socially, academically, and professionally, students need to develop a range of social and emotional skills.
Social and emotional skills help us to handle our impulses, manage and speak about emotions, and build healthy relationships. After the mass trauma caused by the pandemic, we all need these skills more than ever. But how can we increase social and emotional skills in children throughout the globe in a systematic way? HundrED and The LEGO Foundation have partnered in this Spotlight project to identify impactful and scalable solutions that help parents and educators support the development of children’s social and emotional skills.
