The primary concern I have with social-emotional learning (SEL) is the tendency to shift the full responsibility for life events to the learner in question. It's too easy to say that the challenges they face are a result of poor self-awareness or bad decision-making...

I think this is a useful article but I'm not sure the author understands the distinction between a podcast and audio recordings generally. To be clear, a podcast is a set of audio recordings in an open format (typically MP3) distributed though open content...
