Amplifying Happiness Through Emotional Learning Corporate Social Responsibility Programs
by LG Happiness Project | October 2, 2020
The stress of today’s new normal has and will continue to heavily impact schools and student learning, not only on students, but also parents, teachers and educators.Many corporations, brands and community organizations can and do play a critical role in building child mental and emotional health.
Discovery Education, an education technology company leading the world in standards-aligned dynamic digital curriculum resources, explains that education through engaging content that transforms the learning experience, whether that be in the classroom or anywhere else, can be highly effective.
Partnerships that enable this connection prove a primary part of the social and emotional learning equation.
From partnerships with Discovery Education to other initiatives, around the world companies are prioritizing investments in social emotional learning (SEL). Through programs – like Discovery Education’s & LG’s Discover Your Happy – students, educators, and parents have access to SEL resources that support conversations about social emotional wellness with students at all grade levels.
LG Electronics has been at the forefront of driving the science of happiness in schools through their social impact program: “Life’s Good: Experience Happiness,” which aims to reach 5.5 million youth with resources and tools to support social and emotional wellbeing for life-long sustainable happiness skills.
As Christine Ackerson, head of CSR at LG notes, “supporting student’s social and emotional development has never been more important. As we navigate this new normal together, it is imperative that we continue to leverage the power of partnerships to create ongoing and meaningful change, increasing local support and awareness of SEL in schools.”
