Technology is changing the social and emotional landscape that students navigate every day, from how they express themselves to how they communicate with friends and family. How can we support students to promote their own well-being and to be a positive influence in their digital lives?

Common Sense Education has created a new Social-Emotional Learning Resource Center full of free resources for promoting SEL in the digital lives of students. Join us in this edWebinar as we explore:

  • What is SEL?
  • How is SEL related to digital citizenship?
  • What are the unique SEL challenges that students encounter in their digital lives?

This edWebinar will be of interest to teachers, librarians, and school and district leaders of the elementary through high school levels.
