• The Importance of Emotional Intelligence in the Classroom.

    In today's educational landscape, it's essential to recognize the role of emotional intelligence (EI) in our classrooms. Emotional intelligence refers to the ability to understand and manage our own emotions, as well as the emotions of others. For teachers, developing EI can lead to more effective teaching, improved student relationships, and a positive learning environment.
    Incorporating EI into our teaching practices can help students feel more understood and supported. Simple strategies, such as actively listening to students, showing empathy, and creating an inclusive classroom atmosphere, can make a significant difference. When students feel emotionally safe, they are more likely to engage, participate, and excel in their studies.
    As educators in Pakistan, let's prioritize emotional intelligence to foster a nurturing and successful educational experience for all our students.

  • @Abdul_Rafay77 Developing emotional intelligence in the classroom setting yields a host of benefits for students' academic, social, and personal growth. Integrating EQ-building strategies should be a key priority for educators seeking to optimise student success.

    Hi @Abdul_Rafay77
    Hope everything is going well.

    I have been working with AI for emotional intelligence (EI) for the past 8 years. As teachers we know the importance of EI in the classroom, and I really thank you for your topic and the way you bring this. Technology seems to be our little helper because the today students see technology as a motivation and that is in some cases the way to process and navigate their emotions. Here I post an article about one of my projects using AI for students with autism with challenges in EI using Microsoft Cognitive Services-Emotions Recognition.

    Best of luck,
    Mr. Bryan

  • @BRYANb8875625e5 I'm glad about your response and you are working so well i personally really appreciated it keep it up.

  • @BRYANb8875625e5 Great Mr. Bryan while emotional AI holds promise in supporting individuals with ASD in emotional recognition, social skills development, and emotional support, its implementation must be thoughtful, inclusive, and respectful of the diversity within the autism community.

  • @Abdul_Rafay77 Thanks for highlighting emotional intelligence.... It enhances teaching and student relationships by fostering empathy and inclusion.

  • @Abdul_Rafay77 good idea sir , I think emotional development of a child requires to manage the emotions by giving them such environment in and out of classroom so that the behavioural change must be measured on the time . As a teacher and a facilitator for students we have this responsibility on our shoulders to give them such environment so that the positive growth of emotions can go smoothly. However we find the children at the stage of 12 years onwards the emotional changes occur in them instantly ,this is the time we need to understand them more .The emotional development and it's management must be observed carefully of each child in class and if change accurs at any time then there must be sessions with parents and teachers so that the process go smoothly.

    Hello Bryan,
    Hope all is fine. Great initiatives taken on your behalf to value students having disabilities. Indeed teachers should recognise the importance of dealing with the emotional intelligence of students. As you are working with autism students, the 2qaw intelligence should be well catered for so as to make them included. You highlighted the use of AI, which effectively helps in managing the emotional intelligence of autism students. I completely agree with you that technology is one of the best approaches to deal with the emotional intelligence of students as it enables them to navigate their emotions.

    Today this kind of technology is more limited. Althought it is useful for education; some experts say not only do facial expressions that are thought to be universal differ across different populations but that it is unscientific to equate external displays of emotion with internal feelings.

  • @BRYANb8875625e5
    Thank you Mr. Bryan for the information, you gave me an idea to write a research paper on this topic. When I want to arouse the interest of my students in the lesson, I try to use my emotions, by the way, it helps a lot.

  • @Mariam Thanks alot for your valuable appreciation and response this is one of important topic i guess we should focus on it.

  • @Shazia-Baloch Thanks alot for your consideration and response this is one of crucial topic for discussion and being a teacher try to have emotions intelligence on should work on it.

    Today students not only see technology as a motivation tool, it's a part of their every movement. So, every teacher should know the importance of EI. You done a good job . even though I am unable to read the article above and only can see you in the IT lab with a program ' Reading Faces for Autism with an education director, Keren Henriquez. Congrats bro!
