The lack of social and emotional skills can lead to burnout. Unfortunately, it’s not easy to develop these
skills. No one taught us these skills when we were kids. We also didn’t know that they’re vital in our adult
life and they can be developed.
Schools are just starting to understand how emotions can affect students’ way of learning and overall well-
being. Thus, students who were lucky enough to have compassionate teachers growing up have been trained

Psychometric testing will help the company to understand the calibre of a candidate regarding behaviour, aptitude, and personality. It becomes difficult if the company must take every candidate through a detailed interview process when the client timelines are very short for completing any project.

In the beginning
When I began teaching digital citizenship in 2010 it was an innocent time. We were only worried about the students believing all websites were real.

I have parents coming into my classroom today asking how their child is doing in my class. They only have a 95, how can they get a higher grade?
This happens over and over again. I wonder why they're here. I don't think it's to make themselves feel better about how great their child is doing in school. I also don't think that they are very worried about the 95 not being a 98. I believe it's to show their child that they are fully invested in…
