On Thursday, March 22, Six Seconds’ Education Team Members presented the next webinar in our EQ in Education series. Dr. Barbara Fatum, Director of Assessment and Learning Specialist at the Synapse School, Alex Russell, Program Manager, and Dr. Susan Stillman, Director of Education shared the Six Seconds model of EQ competencies and our three pronged approach to social emotional learning.
Participants learned about Six Seconds’ research based tools for adults (the SEI) and for youth (the SEI-YV) and many indicated interest in the tools and our certification process.
Presenters and participants in the webinar discussed the importance of using assessments as part of the SEL implementation process and shared examples of ways we have used these tools in our work with students and the adults who work with them. Participants expressed interest that Six Seconds supports researchers around the world who wish to use the SEI and the SEI-YV. As a result of this discussion, we will be forming an informal Skype group of researchers interested in sharing ideas. For more information, or to join this Skype group, please contact Susan.firstname.lastname@example.org or Alex@6seconds.org
