Mindsets of Social-Emotional Learning: Part 1 – The Research
Wednesday, May 2, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT
Presented by Jeff Waller, Author, Co-Creator and Vice President of Educational Services, 7 Mindsets; and Maria Anifowose, Student, University of North Georgia
Hosted by Lupita Knittel, President, 7 Mindsets
Sponsored by 7 Mindsets
Research has shown that to live meaningful and successful lives, it is no longer sufficient to develop the right skill sets alone. It is about the right mindsets. Mindsets-based social-emotional learning (SEL) leverages the modern understanding of the brain to empower educators to drive higher levels of achievement and happiness for themselves and for their students.
In this two-part edWebinar series, presenters explore mindsets-based SEL from two perspectives: the researcher and the practitioner. They introduce the 7 Mindsets and discuss their personal and professional application.
In part one, presenters review:
- The importance of SEL and the research that led to mindsets-based SEL
- An introduction to the 7 Mindsets and a student’s view of their impact
- Common “counter-mindsets”
- Three proven strategies to improve your personal and professional success
Part two will focus on the practice—creating a sustainable, positive school culture, successful implementation, and more. Leave inspired, empowered, and with practical strategies to incorporate these 7 Mindsets into your personal life, your school, and your community! PreK-12 school and district leaders, SEL leaders and counselors will benefit from attending this event. There will be time to get your questions answered after the presentation.
