Human beings live in a social world. We are surrounded by the people every time. An individual wherever he/she in real life, they have to talk and work with other human beings. Take home as first example we are living with parents, siblings there we learn to be in harmony with each other for daily life routine. Parents teach kids to be friendly with each other. Later, its teachers who teach and other students with whom we have to be in harmony. Till this stage, still it is fine if we lack social skills. But, when we are grown up, the time when we are working at this stage such social skills pave the way for real success. As, we have to work in a team, and to be in team and to complete the job profile there is always a need of communication between everyone. The person with good social intelligence is observed to complete the task more efficiently as compared to other ones. Understanding this impact of such skills, Schools need to work on improving such intelligence right from childhood, so that students can be friendly with anyone in the world and can accomplish their work profile effectively.
Here are some the ways suggested for improving social intelligence in schools:
- Talk with everyone task:
Usually, we see students communicate with only few of the peers and are comfortable with them only. This habit has to be amended and students should be made to talk with everyone in the classroom. A daily task is to be given to talk with different individuals every day and share with whom they talked, particular sheet has to be maintained for evaluation.
- Weekly changing the bench mates/group mates in classrooms:
If the project/ task is assigned, it is observed that a particular group of students work always together. Such a habit is to be changed by changing the group members on weekly basis. So that students will not become accustomed to particular peers only. They should become open-minded and should learn to work with everyone.
- Social networking:
Beyond schools, there is a big world outside. The relatives, neighbors various other human beings we met during different exposures. The student’s right from early age should be made to talk with everyone in the society. These networking help them to understand the other world that exist other than school and home.
