Educators are called to handle different challenges working with different types of learners. Some of them can build easily social relationships; others are very introvert, competitive or even aggressive. Some have self-control and some others may have difficulties regulating their emotions. Some tend to be leaders, while others hesitate to express their opinion.
Different aspects influence social development. According to experts, social development correlates with the child’s and adolescent’s environment. Psychologists and social scientists underline that social skills can, and should, be taught. One of the basic role of education is to cultivate interpersonal skills and to contribute to a participative, democratical society. Aside from that, providing social skills and participation supports students in having better course performances and a more solid self-image. They experience teamwork, learn to manage their emotions, adopt solving problems strategies, become more empathetic and learn to manage conflicts.
