Our mission is getting emotional intelligence life skills training in all schools (educators call it Social-Emotional Learning) and we do so on behalf of 21 allied grassroots SEL educator organizations. This is THE mindset and behavior game-changing skills learning for kids, schools, communities, workplaces and human life on the planet -once we get it universal in schools.

Okay, as a group of people invested in social-emotional learning, most of us are probably familiar with two common and well-known responses to stress - fight or flight. But did you know that a lesser-known view from science is emerging shows that under stress, there is actually an alternative stress response: flock!

What this means is that —in the face of stress— if given the opportunity to connect with people who feel safe and familiar, they are less likely to “flee” or “fight” and more likely to “flock” together as a way to cope with stress and self-regulate, staying at their organizations or schools, growing and thriving, instead of fleeing or fighting.

The result: a committed group of educators that's equipped, clear, supported and strong for the year to come.

If you're a school or district leader who cares about SEL and mental health of adults and students, come to our free webinar TOMORROW (4/21) to learn more about how to bring relational practices to your school or district that will build safety, promote growth, catalyze engagement and ultimately lead to the strongest and most socially-emotionally strong team possible?

In what way does the NEP (2020) espouse the mainstreaming of social emotional learning?


Shortcuts in SEL programming don't go a long way. How do we build for sustained work in ?


Equity, social justice and SEL can be woven beautifully together :)


Error correction is an everyday phenomenon in the classroom. How we do it is crucial.


Point number 4 is our favorite. It upends what most of us have grown up believing about success.


The nature of learning is that it involves setbacks, mistakes and failures. Which subjects and which pedagogical styles are particularly susceptible to , and hence offer plenty opportunity to inculcate a ?


Pedagogical inputs we've been making in Navneet to stimulate and .


SEL . The big question :)


Notice how the research unequivocally shows that implementing SEL effectively requires a lot more than providing standalone classes to children? Which organizations do you notice prioritizing some of the efforts specified below? Tag them :)


In our work with Navneet, we used the last two points given by American Institutes of Research to guide our work of SEL integration into subject textbooks. Which of these strategies could work in your context?


There are limitations to the extent standalone SEL classes can help improve students' social and emotional skills, attitudes, behaviors, and academic performance. When SEL is integrated into core subject material and instruction, students get an opportunity to apply SEL skills in real life settings. Take a look.

Teens struggle with making sense of their identities and the constantly evolving world around them. This often results in heightened stress and anxiety at this stage of life. However, just simple ways of extending support can make a big difference to their lives. #

The continuous lockdown has taken away the space to form new connections. While adults have been able to navigate through, it has been difficult for children to maintain the existing connections. As adults we should be able to support them to help with their development.

Simply telling children to be positive never helps, at best it’s fluff at worst it’s invalidating their authentic experience.

Anxiety and panic are often used interchangeably, there are both similarities and differences between the two. Know what you’re dealing with to cope better.


Sohela is a final year student of M.A in education at Azim Premji university. She is the happiest when she is reading, gardening or petting dogs. She believes that teaching young individuals about empathy can revolutionise social interactions and dissolve boundaries that are dividing and depriving people of a fulfilling life. In this constantly evolving world that poses new challenges everyday, the meaning of education should not be limited to knowledge but enter the sphere of addressing the complexities of human emotions so that the coming generations be prepared with healthy coping mechanisms and not live lives ridden with anxieties.


Ananya is a Teach for India fellow, she is teaching elementary kids from underprivileged backgrounds in Bangalore. She is also a law graduate from ILS Law college, Pune. She is an avid reader, loves playing the guitar and trying out new baked goodies. Ananya believes that SEL is an integral part of education, it plays a role in creating competent leaders and transforming students into self-sufficient individuals who feel equipped to face all kinds of challenges.


In our third Tuesday Thoughtluck, Jayati Doshi and Vrinda Loiwal will lead participants through an exercise on examining the narratives that are unconsciously building for us as we live our own stories of current Covid times, why narratives matter, and how to re-imagine hope and build more life-affirming narratives. Join us by registering at No cost involved.


Step 2 of resilience is tuning into our needs. As long as we are being responsible, can we give ourselves the permission slip we intuitively know we are needing at this time?


"Be positive, yaar!" That's just about the worst thing you can say to someone right now. If you’re reading this in India at this time, then you know what I'm talking about.

Jayati Doshi and Vrinda Loiwal are facilitating a series of thought lucks for collective care in this rather difficult time. Every Tuesday, starting this week, at 5.30pm. Join for one week, or more - it's up to you. Please follow this link ito register yourself (no cost involved).
