Social and Emotional Learning—Essential Skills for Educators and Students
Tom Lehrer once said, “If people can’t communicate, the least they can do is shut-up!” Would that it were so simple. In today’s global melting pot, it’s more important than ever that adults and students master and employ skills that enable them to succeed beyond academics. The concept of Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) is not new, but there is growing interest in this framework. Attend this free, 30-minute webinar to learn more about the five SEL competencies and technology-supported strategies educators and students can use to develop healthier, more productive learning environments. This webinar is presented in collaboration with TICAL.
