It's Time for Social and Emotional Learning for All

It's Time for Social and Emotional Learning for All | School Psychology Tech | Scoop.it

Over the last decade, increased attention has been paid to the social and emotional learning (SEL) needs of children. This area of learning is necessary and essential to address -- for children and adults.


It's time that schools take responsibility for meeting the entire range of learning needs that educators have -- the need to use new technologies, to understand and implement new standards, to use new assessment strategies, and their needs to attend to their own social and emotional learning.

Teaching Empathy: hey, that's networked leadership!

Teaching Empathy: hey, that's networked leadership! | School Psychology Tech | Scoop.it

 

As I read this article on Forbes tonight, Teaching Empathy: The Ancient Way Is Now Cutting-Edge it struck me that the four things they suggest we teach for empathy also represent network leadership.

 

- Teach listening as a core skill and expect it as a cultural practice. 

 

- Start by being an active listener yourself and give people the time they need to reflect.

 

- Time not made for someone is time wasted.Make dialogue a primary team, group or classroom practice. 

 

- Dialogue opens the doors to exploration—what Peter Senge in his guide “The Fifth Discipline Fieldbook” calls “skillful discussion,” where thoughtful decisions can be made that honor all participants (or, in business, stakeholders).

 

- Identify roles, not organizational charts. When people are able to articulate their role, what they need to be successful and what gets in the way of their success, an empathic understanding is present and the beginnings of a healthy team, class or group takes shape.

 

- Lead with consistency, authenticity and honesty.

 

- Be clear as to why you are doing what you are doing.

 

- Do not lead or manage through personality but rather through articulation. To articulate is to clarify.
