Digital citizenship and social emotional learning are vital needs of our students. Students are digital natives, growing up as their lives are documented online. The public exposure experienced by our students was previously known to only celebrities. The integration of skills in social and emotional learning, help our students navigate online connections and invest in healthy relationships, protect their digital identity through self-awareness, and safely express their values and identity through digital platforms. Join us as we discuss the research around today’s social media, the practical application of social emotional learning, and practical examples of guiding students to develop agency in their community.
