Teaching With the HEART in Mind: A New Pedagogy for Purposeful Learning

Social emotional skills are the ticket to learning and living with more purpose, compassion and joy. Studies show that individuals with SEL skills perform at higher levels, are better communicators, and more able to deal with life’s normal setbacks and struggles. These essential skills can be taught and learned over time with intentional practice, good modeling and a supportive learning environment. 

In this research-based and stimulating keynote, Dr. Lorea Martínez teaches attendees how to create an SEL-rich learning environment that will support students of all ages to become socially and emotionally competent, so they can lead purposeful and fulfilling lives.
