European Assessment Protocol for Children's SEL Skills
Start date: Dec 1, 2012,
Research shows that social- emotional skills can be taught and they help improve academic learning. When introduced in the teaching programs, students are more likely to remember and use what they are taught. Emotions can facilitate or impede children’s academic engagement, work ethic, commitment, and ultimate school success. The main contribution of this project to the international research on SEL topics is the creation of a standardized assessment tool, which will offer precise guidelines to evaluate children’s SEL skills and will help to guarantee high quality SEL intervention practices. Another new element of this project is the implementation of similar teacher training in 5 different countries (Italy, Switzerland, Slovenia, Croatia and Sveden) and the sharing of expertise. Also, an innovative element is the ICT technology which will be used in the process of data comparison and creation of the assessment protocol. This approach is supposed to create a “European model of SEL” and, at the same time, a “European SEL Board” periodically monitoring the SEL state of the art in Europe, reference point which will be useful for future socio-emotional learning programs across the Continental sustainability of SEL development in Europe.
