Academics Aren’t Enough: Nurturing Social-Emotional Learning in Homes and Classrooms


We’re joined by Robert Jenkins, Chief of Education at the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), and Leslee Udwin, Founder and CEO of Think Equal, to discuss how we can support students’ mental well-being and nurture social emotional development during this global pandemic.

While many educators are focusing on getting the academics right with online learning, equally important is social-emotional learning across all age groups.
