We know that meeting the social and emotional needs of students is critical to academic success; students learn better when they feel heard, valued, and respected. In this edWebinar, viewers will define and understand the digital stressors that kids are facing in digital spaces, such as social media and gaming platforms. They will discover ways to best integrate SEL practices and content to mitigate those stressors. Lastly, we will review examples of how educators identify and address stressors in the classroom. Viewers will leave with practical strategies on how to address the digital stressors students are facing and resources to complement SEL content in the classroom.
This recorded edWebinar will be of interest to kindergarten through high school teachers. There will be time to have your questions answered at the end of the presentation.
