Best practices for integrating social-emotional learning are not limited to the physical confines of a school building. Research-supported strategies for promoting social-emotional development within the classroom setting can be translated to a virtual learning environment as well.
At the start of COVID-19, we released a 2-pager to better equip educators with resources for SEL integration in a virtual world. We have since revised our SEL Integration Approach as well as the remote learning guide. At a time when so much is unpredictable, inconsistent, and outside of an educator’s “circle of control”, the practices outlined here channel energy into tangible ways to be responsive and supportive in a complex time.
This 30-minute informational video walks you through how to support the social-emotional development of both students and staff while they are physically apart. It highlights SEL best practices and resources that can be leveraged for distance learning.
