Exploring how to Bring SEL, via Digital Citizenship, into the Distance Learning Environment

Block F – October 29, 2:30 PM

Exploring how to Bring SEL, via Digital Citizenship, into the Distance Learning Environment

We know that meeting social & emotional needs of students is critical to academic success — students learn better when they feel heard, valued, & respected. Join Common Sense Education as we explore unique ways educators can use digital citizenship and social-emotional learning to create engaging welcoming learning environments whether in person or from a distance. Participants will discuss digital dilemmas our students may be facing and the questions that they raise. You will leave with strategies, thinking routines and tools to help students navigate their digital lives with perspective.
