Social-Emotional Learning - Leveraging Technology to Care for All
Show Notes

This edWeb podcast is sponsored by ClassLink and co-hosted by CoSN, AASA, and edWeb.net.
The webinar recording can be accessed here.

One of the key functions of education is building skills, not only for academic success, but also for understanding mental, social, and emotional wellbeing. Critical capabilities that include empathy, grit, persistence, flexibility, and adaptability shape mindsets which enhance successful learning, collaboration and problem-solving. Though these aspects of learning have always been important, the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic heightened the need to address the social and emotional aspects of learning, not only for students and their families, but also for teachers, school leaders and administrators. The use of technology to meet these social and emotional essentials has also been heightened over the past months. Today educators are challenged to think about how technology can enhance and/or diminish the social-emotional needs they must address. 

In this edWeb podcast, three innovative, compassionate superintendents share how they address the social and emotional needs of the students, staff, and families in their school districts. They each review the strategies and practices they are leading in their districts to leverage technology tools to address the challenges of social-emotional learning. 

This edWeb podcast is of particular value to superintendents, K-12 school and district leaders, and aspiring school leaders.
