Social emotional learning is a term used within the education sector today. But what exactly does it mean, and how can it benefit your students?
On October 22, 2021, from 11:00 – 12:00 PT, join the School Physical Activity and Physical Literacy project for “Social Emotional Learning 101: An Overview for K-7 Educators”.
This webinar will introduce K-7 educators to social emotional learning. Specifically, the five core competencies of social emotional learning will be presented, along with how these skills can be honed throughout the school day. Educators will be invited to identify areas in their current teaching practice that can be slightly adjusted to enhance students’ social emotional learning skill development.
This webinar will be presented by Dr. Amanda Stanec.
