Using Games to Assess and Personalize Your SEL Instruction

Wednesday, November 18, 2015 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EST

board game

Presented by Jessica Berlinski, Chief Impact Officer at Personalized Learning Games
Hosted by Common Sense Education


Educators today struggle to find engaging, evidence-based Social Emotional Learning (SEL) tools for their students – tools that adapt to the skill level of each student, supporting and challenging them exactly where they need it. Administrators and counselors struggle with easy ways to validly assess SEL skills and screen students for Tier 2 support.

In this recorded webinar, learn how personalized SEL games are uniquely meeting the needs of both Tier 1 and Tier 2 students. Hear about the evidence behind how the skills that these games are improving in students transfer to the “real world,” such as emotion regulation, empathy, impulse control and cooperation. Also hear the latest research on game-based SEL assessment, including how games are being used in schools to easily assess SEL skills, and screen students for Tier 2 support at scale. Experience how games use formative and performance-based methods to produce real-time, reliable data on students’ SEL competencies.

Jessica Berlinski, Chief Impact Officer of Personalized Learning Games, presented the latest research, use cases and gameplay, and walk away with a toolbox full of evidence-based games that you can put into practice immediately in your classroom or small group. This recorded webinar is geared for teachers, counselors, and administrators, specifically at the elementary and middle school level.

Join the Digital Classroom community to participate in online discussions with peers, for invitations to upcoming webinars, to view past webinar recordings, to take a quiz and receive a CE certificate for a past webinar, and for access to more resources.
