Social and Emotional EDU 970 Strengthening SEL Learning Using Tech

Eduspire’s courses are offered by Wilson College as individual 3-credit graduate-level courses, and most courses can also be taken as part of the Master of Educational Technology (MET) degree program.

A consistent focus on Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) enhances teaching and learning while supporting the overall well-being of students and educators in the classroom. This course focuses on using technology to maximize the benefits associated with SEL to improve students’ overall connection with school and social emotional growth.

 

Social-emotional‌ ‌development‌ ‌can‌ ‌be‌ ‌taught‌ ‌using‌ ‌a‌ ‌variety‌ ‌of‌ ‌approaches‌ ‌that‌ ‌are‌ ‌sequenced,‌ ‌active,‌ ‌focused,‌ ‌and‌ ‌explicit.‌ ‌A‌ ‌2018‌ ‌Pew‌ ‌Research‌ ‌Center‌ ‌study‌ ‌found‌ ‌that‌ ‌95‌ ‌percent‌ ‌of‌ ‌U.S.‌ ‌teens‌ ‌now‌ ‌have‌ ‌access‌ ‌to‌ ‌a‌ ‌smartphone.‌ ‌This‌ ‌must‌ ‌be‌ ‌recognized‌ ‌in‌ ‌order‌ ‌for‌ ‌these‌ ‌digital‌ ‌natives‌ ‌to‌ ‌be‌ ‌reached.‌ ‌There‌ ‌has‌ ‌never‌ ‌been‌ ‌a‌ ‌more‌ ‌important‌ ‌moment‌ ‌for‌ ‌educators‌ ‌to‌ ‌insist‌ ‌on‌ ‌evidence-based‌ ‌strategies‌ ‌and‌ ‌practices‌ ‌to‌ ‌lift‌ ‌the‌ ‌next‌ ‌generations‌ ‌of‌ ‌children‌ ‌to‌ ‌their‌ ‌full‌ ‌potential.‌
