    The Golf Channel hit a hole in one with the revitalization of part of its Orlando campus. The channel turned to Walker Design LLC to create a high-functioning, multi-use space within a 1,200-square-foot area. The space holds conference and training areas plus a genius bar. It has fully integrated audio/visual technology, integrated writable surfaces for informal gatherings and multiple movable seating options that can house 150 occupants. The floor and ceiling patterns reflect lively, pixelated textures to contrast with and balance the static walls. Photography by Chad Baumer Photography.

Supporting a major initiative to help create more positive, healthy schools, Six Seconds is partnering with Facebook and the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence to launch “InspirED.” The program includes online resources created by teens and educators for their peers, as well as an award to recognize projects that bring social emotional learning to schools.

InspirED was unveiled at the Emotion Revolution Summit this fall at Yale University. The event was held to build awareness of the critical role emotions play in young people’s learning, decision-making, and overall wellness. It gathered youth from around the country to share their ideas for creating improved learning environments with key educators, academics, and policy makers. Six Seconds’ leaders Anabel Jensen and Susan Stillman as well as Born This Way Foundation Co-Founders Lady Gaga and Cynthia Germanotta, Yale President Dr. Peter Salovey, and Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence Director Marc Brackett attended the event.

Six Seconds CEO Josh Freedman sees InspirED as invaluable, “This collaboration with major players in the fields of emotional intelligence and social media has huge potential to change the way schools integrate emotional knowledge into their programs. We are gratified to be offering our expertise in the topic of emotional intelligence to this inspiring project.”

Social and emotional learning (SEL) is the process through which children and adults acquire and effectively apply the knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary to understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions.

Facebook will bring the InspirED resources to teens and educators in the next year. Six Seconds has created a special InspirED free eLearning program for educators to develop additional social emotional learning skills.
