  • Importance of SEL: It supports skills such as communication, collaboration, critical thinking and creativity among students which is as important as numeracy and literacy (central aims of NEP 2020).

      • Building healthy relationships,
      • Having self and social awareness,
      • Solving problems,
      • Making responsible decisions, and
      • Academic learning.
    • Research finds that students with greater social skills and emotional regulation are more likely to have success.
  • Key Elements of SEL: Key elements of SEL include cultivating ‘empathy’ and ‘theory of mind’.
    • Empathy: It is the ability to understand another person’s emotions and be aware of why they might be feeling those emotions from their perspective.
    • Theory of Mind: It is the ability to understand others’ intentions, knowledge and beliefs and recognize that those might be different from your own.

Social and Emotional Learning-Way Forward

  • Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) should be integrated with the larger curriculum rather than just being added as a chapter in it.
    • It is vital to consider that the learning process is a social and emotional experience.
  • Develop an Indian SEL framework: This should be based on the following-
    • Application of SEL practices should be based on students’ socioeconomic backgrounds,
    • SEL strategies of caretakers and educators must align with one another,
    • Long-term success requires SEL to be based on scientific evidence.
  • Role of Policymakers: policymakers have to ensure that future changes prioritize “inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.”
