As educators, we strive to integrate technology into our instruction every day. But how often are we actually learning in an online setting? Now, we invite you to be a professional online learner and participate in SCCOE’s Professional Innovation Pathways. Each course and academy focuses on a unique digital theme, relevant research, and best practices of digital learning.
Social Emotional Learning is an important component of student learning, along with thinking skills and content knowledge. As students navigate complex life and work environments they need to develop knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary to understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions. It is likely you already teach many of the aspects of Social Emotional Learning. This course will introduce you to Social Emotional Learning and assist you in using the strategies more intentionally in your own classroom or with colleagues at your school or work site.
The participant will successfully demonstrate an emerging level of understanding about Social Emotional Learning competencies, classroom strategies, and best practices.
