The EmpowerED Superintendent edWebinar Series:
Social-Emotional Learning: Leveraging Technology to Care for All
The third episode of Season 4 of the EmpowerED Superintendent Webinar series airs on Monday, November 8, 2021, at 5:00 pm Eastern Time and is titled, “Social-Emotional Learning: Leveraging Technology to Care for All”. The CoSN 2021 Driving K-12 Innovation Report identified Social Emotional Learning as one of the three accelerators or mega-trends in K-12 education today. 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.
In this edWebinar, three innovative, compassionate superintendents share how they address the social and emotional needs of the students, staff, and families in their school districts. The following recommendations from the CoSN 2021 Driving K-12 Innovation Report will be highlighted along with examples for leading the implementation of each recommendation:
1) Provide SEL and well-being support for educators and students.
2) Integrate SEL into curriculum.
3) Build educator and community buy-in.
Additionally the superintendents will each review the strategies and practices they are leading in their districts to leverage technology tools to address the challenges of social-emotional learning.
You are invited to join in the conversation with Dr. Ann Levett, Superintendent, Savannah-Chatham County Public Schools, GA, Dr. David Miyashiro, Superintendent, Cajon Valley Union School District, CA; and Mr. Glenn Robbins, Superintendent, Brigantine Public Schools, NJ.
