Current events force us to examine the social and emotional learning (SEL) aspects of professional relationships across educational settings. How can we support learning by addressing the affective element of interactions between students, parenting adults and educators? In this session, you will learn how to champion the whole student through technology-based connections. We will explore approaches to encouraging empathy, relationship-building and discover kindness initiatives that you can take back to your campus or district. Participants will engage in collaborative activities, a design-thinking challenge and brainstorming practical ‘use-it-Monday’ applications and more. Each strategy will employ affordable and accessible apps, resources or websites appropriate for participants.
