Revamping Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) in the Classroom with Technology
Tuesday November 27, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm EST
Presented by Kasey Bradley, School Counselor, Southside Elementary, Bedford County, TN; and Jordan Tatom, School Counselor, Liberty School, Bedford County, TN
Hosted by Monte Tatom, Associate Professor of Education, Freed-Hardeman University, TN
Teaching social and emotional skills can be challenging for preservice teachers. It is crucial for students to learn how to effectively manage their emotions. When students understand how to apply social and emotional skills it allows them to set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions. This is something that needs to take place in the classroom!
In this edWebinar, school counselors Kasey Bradley and Jordan Tatom provide resources through technology that can be implemented in the classroom by preservice teachers to help foster strong social and emotional learning.
