The Case for a Calm Classroom

Young people are having increasing difficulty focusing in our fast-paced, technology-saturated world. This constant distraction impairs learning, emotional regulation, relationships, and, ultimately, success in life. An understanding of self, other, and larger systems is needed to help students navigate a fast-paced world of increasing distraction and interconnectedness.
