Spotlight on Social Emotional Learning

According to recent collaborative study by Microsoft and McKinsey, the kindergartners of today will require more focus on Social emotional learning then enhancing just the cognitive skills.

"Social-emotional skills provide students with the perspective and flexibility necessary to function at a high level even when faced with uncertainty, change, pressure, stress, and other work and life challenges."

 

Per this study, "this is critical, because change and uncertainty are going to be increasingly pervasive for the class of 2030. Trends indicate the class of 2030 will change jobs more frequently than any previous generation, as across nearly all industries, the impact of technological and other changes is shortening the shelf life of employees’ existing skill sets."

How is Code-it Hacks integrating the Social Emotional Learning (SEL) support?

We are proud to state that SEL has always been an integral part of our program. Now more so, we feel the need to offer a balance between creating technology savvy learners and learners that can engage socially and navigate the world confidently without breaking under the pressures of the world. Every Code-it Hacks program, virtual or in person, integrates:

  • collaboration (during design and build)

  • Inquiry based learning (Problem and project-based)

  • Research and Presentation

  • Personalized learning plan and feedback
