executive functioning is also the foundation for social-emotional development

I liked the video examples, as well as the simple and easy-to-understand terminology.

EF is very important

I found this module not very challenging. There should be a quiz after each module to test knowledge. The information was interesting.

EF and kids: It's real, can be measured, improved with practice

It was a mixed experience of reading, listening, watching, and assessment of what I learned.

Interesting

I liked the quick overview. It raises many questions for me. Such as but not limited to how to apply this in children under three to help give them a foundation to support these skills as they grow.

Simple and quick overview of EF

I liked that it was broken into small segments that were easy to read and process. I also enjoyed the video clips from the movies. It made the concepts real.
