What is Social Emotional Learning?

Emotional intelligence (EQ) is not a new concept; it was around as long ago as Socrates, who had these wise words of advice: Know Thyself.

Hundreds of years later, we have begun to formalize Socrates' philosophies into what has become known as social and emotional learning

(SEL), the learning process by which we can aspire to a higher EQ.



Studies show that EQ is the best predictor of a child's future achievement; better than any other single factor.

EQ is a better predictor of success than IQ and technical skills combined.
