Hosted by Colin Hill (@digicoled), in this episode we speak to Paulina Olsson whose work has seen her explore the importance of developing emotional intelligence in young people, establishing an app called Peppy Pals that help young people articulate their emotions. Also, we caught up with Andy Sammons, author of The Compassionate Teacher (read our review here) who argues that society has forgotten how to show compassion, and the role schools and teachers can have in helping resolve many issues dividing us.
