New Strategies for Teaching Social-Emotional Learning During COVID-19 (Video)
Social-emotional learning, or SEL, has been shown to increase a child’s academic success throughout their K-12 education. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the need for SEL is more important than ever, with many students across the U.S. searching for a sense of normalcy as they may be struggling with grief, anxiety, and isolation from their peers.
Watch our previously recorded roundtable on Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) in the time of COVID-19. Schools across the U.S. must be prepared for further remote learning in 2021, and for the aftermath of the pandemic and the trauma that it may have caused students. During this 45-minute recorded roundtable produced with Impero Software, the Learning Technology Center of Illinois (LTC) and Committee for Children, we covered how schools can be the first lines of defense against mental health issues for students in remote learning – and how educators can use SEL techniques to ensure students are safe and prepared to do their best this school year.
