About the book

The current challenges of at-home schooling, distance and on-line learning due to Covid-19 have created unprecedented questions in learning continuity and its relationship to socio-economic gaps in children's education. There is a large discrepancy in learning environments both cognitively and emotionally in the homes of school aged children. Mindfulness and social-emotional programming in schools have grown exponentially in recent years.

The aim of this book is to use mindfulness practices to bridge recent gains made in school with current evidence based research and professional expertise so that school-aged children continue to learn and to grow intellectually and socially despite not being in the physical classroom. The scope of chapters will include practical advice and implementable ideas for parents, caregivers and teachers as well as theoretical explication for specific steps illuminating theory into practice. Community based learning circles and inviting the aims of the public library into the private living room are explored.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Romina Rovan

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
