For the past two years, the Reimagine Learning Fund has been convening a network of 100 leading organizations and individuals who are committed to reimagining the way that learning happens in America so that all students can achieve academic and life success.
In February, we joined an amazing group of partners – including John Legend, WME | IMG, Public School NYC and Understood.org – at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week to officially launch our work to support schools and communities in the creation of learning environments that unleash individual promise and creativity in all children. Ever since, we've been regularly convening and engaging the Reimagine Learning network to push harder and be bolder in all of our work - across practice, policy, and culture change - so that we can take advantage of the collective moment of opportunity to transform learning in America.
One of the members of the Reimagine Learning network, the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence, recently announced an important joint initiative with the Born this Way Foundation called the Emotion Revolution.
The following is a message from the Emotion Revolution on their latest initiative to build awareness around the critical role of emotions in learning:
"The Emotion Revolution wants to partner with you! Join the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence, Born This Way Foundation, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, Facebook, HopeLab, and hundreds of non-profits and schools around the nation to promote the survey and put the #EmotionRevolution in the hands of our youth. Reach out on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and all your networking platforms to let high school students know that the time to raise their voices is now!
Today, Wednesday, June 10th, we are asking you to promote the #EmotionRevolution and encourage high school students in your networks to take the short survey here.
The survey asks students how they currently feel in school, and importantly, how they hope to feel. Yale researchers will analyze the data to drive the national conversation on building positive emotional climates in schools."
