Builds rapport and relationships from an empathetic perspective

Generation Text Online is a proactive way of addressing intolerant related issues/communications that occur routinely, whether it be between student to student or student to teacher.  There is unconscious bias that occur in classrooms and the GTO program is an effective proactive approach, which educates/trains students and teachers to understand and effectively communicate socially and interpersonally with one another.  The importance of building rapport, relating and understanding one another from an empathetic perspective and teaching the important values of respect, trust and inclusion are the hallmarks of the GTO program.

The GTO approach has resulted in students understanding one another more effectively as well as teachers understanding their students and the motivations that drive their behavior to learn and behave most effectively.  Teachers and staff have reported that using the tools from the GTO program have resulted in students being more connected with their peers as well as teachers, which has increased levels of trust and empathy in interpersonal and whole group relationships while positively impacting the culture of the classroom environment for optimal learning. 

Whether you are a school administrator, teacher, parent, mentor or corporation, we can design a program to suit your needs. Let’s make the connection!

Getting students to think about actions

Guiding students through group conversations about the Eight Essential Questions really seems to be an excellent way of handling any type of bullying situations going on in your class.

I really enjoyed differentiating between bullying and discriminatory harassment

As a teacher I never considered discriminatory harassment in school or online for that matter, I always had one broad term, bullying.

I Learned So Much

As an educator, I am more aware of how my classroom should be (culture and climate) and it’s so important.
