When Daniel Goleman’s groundbreaking book, Emotional Intelligence: Why it can matter more than IQ, was first released in the mid-1990s, it quickly became a best-seller and changed the way many people think about what it means to be smart. Challenging the prevailing preeminence of IQ as the standard of excellence in life, Goleman argued that emotional intelligence, comprised of five key non-cognitive skills, has a greater bearing on success in life than cognitive intelligence, which is measured by IQ.

The concept of emotional intelligence, which Harvard Business Review called “a ground-breaking, paradigm-shattering idea,” has profound implications for education. Drawing from research in the fields of neuroscience and psychology, Goleman concluded that, unlike IQ emotional intelligence, or “EQ,” is not set in one’s genes. Instead, it is shaped by experience and can be strengthened through explicit teaching of social and emotional skills. He argued that teaching children emotional intelligence skills was a powerful way to improve both academic performance and behavior.

In the video Emotional Intelligence: A New Vision for EducatorsGoleman makes the case for incorporating emotional intelligence into classrooms and schools, and guides viewers through scenes from a school in Hillsborough, CA, that was among the first in the country to adopt an emotional literacy curriculum.

Although emotional intelligence is no longer a new idea, it is no less relevant or significant to education today as it was when it was first introduced. In fact, recent research and studies lend support to the case for teaching students emotional intelligence skills. The data show that test scores and grade point averages increase significantly and disciplinary actions decrease when schools implement social and emotional learning (SEL) programs that promote emotional intelligence. 

This video will help educators understand what emotional intelligence means, why it matters, and how they can help students develop the social and emotional skills that account for emotional intelligence.
