Simple, Sustainable Social Emotional Learning

Move This World is a social emotional learning program that provides multimedia content for districts, schools and teachers to develop social skills and strengthen emotional intelligence in pre-kindergarten through high school. Teachers open and close the school instructional time by showing a short and engaging video to help children and adolescents develop emotional management strategies, empathy, resilience, conflict resolution skills and more. The program integrates seamlessly into the school day and creates a common language for emotional expression and management throughout the school building, allowing school leaders to effectively transform school culture.

 

Why is social emotional learning important?

The Collaborative for Academic, Social and Emotional Learning (CASEL) defines social emotional learning as 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 decisions responsibly. By developing these skills, children and adults are better prepared to address and strengthen their social and emotional wellbeing. For schools, this means learning environments that are safe, supportive and more successful.  Emotional intelligence influences success in school and in the workplace.  Social emotional learning provides the foundation children need to achieve lifelong happiness.
