Terri P's curator insight, April 9, 11:49 AM

Social-emotional-learning (SEL) is no just for kids. Set aside the issue of yet one more acronym to remember, SEL is a part of learning at every age level. Instructors should become more fluent in reading the emotions on their students faces. A student who is struggling wit the lesson, concept, or their life can be spotted easily. Just look for the frowning, sad, or lost look on a face. Instructors should be the best at this, but unfortunately many merely do not want to get  involved in what they may perceive as " the student's issues". I think it is up to the next generation of teachers, instructors, and professors to get skilled in this essential component for learning. Too many students quit because someone did not take 10 minutes to come alongside a hurting or confused student and offer a kind word and help wit the information.

Thomas Edison' 10,000 opportunities to learn reassure me that my own opportunities are not in vain. Excellent idea to "re-frame" failure by reflecting on what did work and what did not and how aspects could be adjusted to create a new possibility.

"In their attempts to establish a 1:1 program for the year 6 class, St Oliver Plunket has recently held a series of workshops in order to develop their students skills before they were officially given management of their very own devices.

The workshops were particularly centered around teaching students about some tips and tricks for managing their iPad, email etiquette, successful searching and copyright and creative commons. I personally was thrilled by the efforts these people from St Oliver are putting into making their 1:1 program a success and I hope other schools would do the same."
