The Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence conducts research and teaches people of all ages how to develop their emotional intelligence. inspirED provides the resources for youth to take the lead on making their school a better place.
InspirED teams were formed at over 40 schools across the country. Students at each school, with their educator advocate, were trained in the inspirED process: A - assess your school climate; B - brainstorm ideas; C - commit to and complete a project or campaign; D - debrief your impact. Students were encouraged to consider how school climate (relationships, quality instruction, safety) and healthy technology habits intersect and to harness the power of technology in the projects they chose. Students chose projects such as holding digital space for peer mentoring and social support, organizing tech-free days, sending distance learning students hands-on materials to support teacher instruction, motivational posters in the hallways, and much more.
