This episode’s recording was taken from a live webinar. To view the full webinar recording, click here.

Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) refers to a person’s ability to recognize and regulate their emotions, build relationships, and make responsible decisions. Now more than ever, a student’s SEL skills are crucial for participating in this socially and technologically changing world.

Practicing SEL skills while learning remotely can be challenging, though. That’s why we’ve welcomed back Abby Lyons, a Social Emotional Learning Coach for ROE #17 in Bloomington-Normal. In this episode, Lyons guides a discussion on the keys to SEL development, while providing parents and caregivers with the knowledge needed to model SEL skills in their home’s remote learning environment.

This event was hosted by LTC SPARK as part of an ongoing parent-focused webinar series. For more information about SPARK, or to view other upcoming events, please visit our website or follow us on Twitter (@ltc_SPARK).
