SEE Learning™ (Social, Emotional and Ethical Learning) is a K-12 education program developed at Emory University to support students’ and educators’ holistic development. It was shaped by experts in psychology, education, and neuroscience, in partnership with The Dalai Lama, who has long called for universal education of the heart and mind.
Emory reached hundreds of educators through face-to-face training, but to meet the demand for the curriculum and facilitate the necessary ongoing support, something more was needed.
Emory engaged The XD Agency to partner with the SEE Learning thought leaders to create a custom online platform and design the training to prepare, support and connect educators around the world. Our work included branding, design, content creation and video, and it culminated with the launch of the SEE Learning online platform in early 2019.
The platform houses SEE 101, a 7-module course in multiple languages, plus supporting resources, a community space for educators, and the capability to provide data analytics to support ongoing research. Thanks to our partnership, educators anywhere can take the orientation, download curricula, and connect to the SEE Learning community. This new platform represents a major milestone for Emory in the University’s ongoing relationship with The Dalai Lama.
"The SEE Learning online platform is a transformative moment for education around the world,” said Brendan Ozawa-de Silva, Associate Director for Emory’s Center for Contemplative Science and Compassion-Based Ethics. “Within its first week, the SEE Learning platform reached more educators than in the past four years of the program combined, and the positive feedback from educators has been overwhelming. This is a perfect example of creativity and technology being used to advance a social good."
The XD Agency is proud of the way we used experience design principles to advance a greater good. To help educators foster emotional, social, and ethical intelligence. And to empower students to engage ethically in a global community. As the client made plain, the impact of our work will be felt around the world and for generations to come.
