Governments give education a high profile but today it is increasingly about targets, testing and technology. And some people disagree with this narrow approach. There’s now a lot of evidence to show that emotions play a big part in how we think and make decisions and therefore fostering emotional literacy can improve academic performance, communication skills and self-confidence. This is a fascinating look at the work of Antidote as for the first time they take a whole school approach to introducing children to their emotions and questioning and reasoning skills – with some stunning results. Inspiring and thought-provoking professional development for teachers.
