Persona Education Newsletter, Mar-22
The Persona Life Skills online learning platform now includes an intuitive student learning journey, making guiding students easy, even for non-specialist teachers.
Persona Life Skills is the online social-emotional learning platform where students age 13-19 develop life skills for wellbeing and employability, with a unique personality insights framework at its heart.
The homepage learning journey takes students through our recommended series of scaffolded learning units, building social-emotional skills for social, learning and workplace wellbeing. In the first three units, students begin developing a better understanding of themselves and other people, through our personality insights. Unit 4 and beyond are themed around life challenges such as The Unexpected, Preparing for Exams, Getting Along With Teachers, Interview Ready, First Job and more.

Where next on our EdTech journey?
Picking up on one of the themes that came up in our conversations at the BETT show in London a couple of weeks ago, there's a lot of talk about student wellbeing at the moment, and the need to improve social-emotional learning. But how do we make that happen?
Teachers have a “pivotal role” in teaching social-emotional competencies according to UNESCO. The first step towards getting this right is to train teachers so they: 1. Feel like part of a team; 2. Are able to choose from different options; 3. Value the innovative potential of technologies.
One aspect that teachers love about Persona's edtech platform is that they get to explore their own personality, and use those insights to learn how to interact with colleagues and students more effectively.
