Social Emotional Learning is so important. The free online conference going on now put together by Jason and Ceilia Hilkey with experts like Alfie Kohn, Tony Wagner and many more experts on this topic is a must-listen and share.
My interview will air on Friday about Using Projects to teach Compassion AND Technology to share how compassion-based engineering works in the classroom. Teachers, administrators, homeschoolers, and parents will find inspiration.
Please join me for the Education: Next Generation Online Conference! This is a FREE global online event from May 23-27, 2016, bringing together the voices of over 25 experts and thought leaders in parenting and education.
