“Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.”
Although the original intent of this proverb was most likely not talking about social-emotional learning, we can certainly apply its objective to this topic. If we only focus on surface-level behaviors, we put a temporary band-aid on a much deeper issue. If we can provide a psychological safe space for students to develop self-awareness, self-control, and interpersonal skills, we can help them grow into young adults who are better able to cope with everyday challenges and benefit academically, professionally, and socially.
This edWebinar provides simple and practical strategies for how educators can integrate social-emotional learning techniques to help students develop competencies that last a lifetime. Using real-life stories from the classroom about how these approaches have created positive behavior change, the presenters share what they have learned with viewers.
This recorded edWebinar is of interest to K-12 teachers, school and district leaders, and education technology leaders.
About the Presenters
Laura Taylor is a firm believer in the power of an example and the power of belief. Her mother provided a tremendous example of servant leadership as an educator and administrator. Her high school math teacher breathed a level of belief in her that resulted in an immediate thought-process and performance shift. Those two attributes shaped her and helped launch the trajectory of her life’s work. With over a decade of experience in leadership and personal development training, she became passionate about applying this same mindset to the edtech sector. Joining forces with a veteran 20-year teacher, Laura became Co-Founder and CEO of the company, Flathat. She resides in Lakewood Ranch, Florida with her husband Dirk, four children, and two dogs.
This is Elizabeth Coller’s 13th year in the classroom. She believes that educators need to help their students Maslow before they Bloom and has a passion for building strong classroom communities, classroom management systems, and loves teaching practical life skills to her students! She believes that it’s important that we help nurture the whole child. She believes that social-emotional skills are vital for the growth of all children and she weaves SEL into her curriculum in order to develop self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision making.
Dirk Taylor is a former collegiate athlete who applies the same work ethic, commitment, and bulldog determination to the business arena as he previously did to his sports. With over a decade of experience in the business-development and leadership-training sectors, he is passionate about connecting and partnering with the right people. Dirk believes true success is preceded by succession. As Student Engagement and Safety Advocate at Flathat, he makes it his mission to bring a safer and more effective form of communication to our school systems.
