Games can enable children to practice emotions in spaces that are free from actualized consequences. With thoughtful guidance, games can help children manage emotions, perspective take, demonstrate empathic concern, and exhibit prosocial behaviors. But games themselves cannot be responsible for children’s learning. Having a supportive educator guiding experiences is crucial.

Join Matthew Farber, Ed.D. as he shares the importance of leveraging games for social-emotional learning (SEL). You will walk away with a variety of resources and strategies, segmented by grade level and content area, including digital and non-digital tools and games to assist with SEL skill building.

This edWebinar will be of interest to PreK-12 teachers, librarians, and education technology leaders. There will be time for questions at the end of the presentation.
