Social and Emotional EDU 970 Using Tech to Teach the Whole Child

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.

The‌ ‌surge‌ ‌in‌ ‌demand‌ ‌for‌ ‌SEL‌ ‌(social-emotional‌ ‌learning)‌ ‌practices‌ ‌is‌ ‌a‌ ‌powerful‌ ‌stimulant‌ ‌for‌ ‌innovation.‌ ‌When‌ ‌the‌ ‌school‌ ‌culture‌ ‌calls‌ ‌for‌ ‌instruction‌ ‌geared‌ ‌toward‌ ‌high-stakes‌ ‌testing,‌ ‌the‌ ‌ importance‌ ‌of‌ ‌EI‌ ‌(emotional‌ ‌intelligence)‌ ‌is‌ ‌often‌ ‌omitted.‌ ‌This‌ ‌requires‌ ‌a‌ ‌renewed‌ ‌clarity‌ ‌around‌ ‌ what‌ ‌curricular‌ ‌quality‌ ‌means,‌ ‌and‌ ‌what‌ ‌it‌ ‌looks‌ ‌like‌ ‌in‌ ‌different‌ ‌contexts‌ ‌and‌ ‌communities.‌ ‌Using‌ ‌technology‌ ‌to‌ ‌boost‌ ‌Emotional‌ ‌Quotient‌ ‌while‌ ‌meeting‌ ‌common‌ ‌core‌ ‌standards‌ ‌is‌ ‌a‌ ‌powerful‌ ‌way‌ ‌to‌ ‌promote‌ ‌education‌ ‌of‌ ‌the‌ ‌whole‌ ‌child.‌ ‌

 

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.‌
