Policy Report: Social and Emotional Learning
This policy report is aimed at policymakers eager to widen their understanding, address the challenges and increase the opportunities for social emotional learning in their education system. The report is a joint effort by HundrED and the LEGO Foundation to highlight relevant research, share key challenges and showcase successful solutions implemented across the world.
Findings from this report indicate that national contexts matter in how Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) is understood, framed, and implemented at the classroom level. From the selected innovators, it is learned that the initial motivation to develop SEL programs varies according to the local needs of the context in which these innovations originated. Culture, religion, political history, crises, and social diversity are factors that have influenced the way in which SEL was developed in each context. In all of the countries featured, public-private partnerships play a key role in supporting SEL innovations.
