EQ for Education

The learnable, measurable skills of emotional intelligence predict academic and lifelong success. At Six Seconds, we’re committed to supporting educators who wish to make social emotional learning part of their school environment.

What is social and emotional learning?

Social and emotional learning (SEL) is the process through which children and adults acquire and effectively apply the knowledge, attitudes and skills necessary to understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions. Learn more.


Why does emotional intelligence matter in education?

Schools with successful SEL programs are safe, engaging and well-managed environments where children can focus on learning. Teaching SEL reduces violence and conflict while creating an atmosphere of trust, engagement, and curiosity.


How we support evidence-based implementation of emotional intelligence:

SEL Research

Conducting, supporting, and sharing research on effective implementation of social emotional learning.


Encouraging effective SEL implementation through Benchmarks for Social Emotional Learning.


Supporting additional research through Six Seconds’ Grants.
