Prioritizing SEL (Social and Emotional Learning) in an Online Environment

Webinar begins at 1 p.m. CT

Presented by Kirsten Wilson, M.Ed, Virtual Arkansas
Sponsored by Quality Matters

Social Emotional Learning isn’t just something that is designed and developed in a course. It takes active training and a set of skills with an online educator to know what “just-in-time” supports are needed for students. Learn how Virtual Arkansas has taken the course-embedded elements of SEL and brought them full circle through leveraging all forms of communication in their courses along with the learner-centric approach of their teachers and systematic steps to interact, invest and maximize every opportunity to support and build capacity in students. This is where Virtual Arkansas takes the QM K-12 Rubric standards of 5.2, 5.3 and 5.4 along with the NSQ for Online Teaching and Learning and implements them with authenticity and fidelity.

The world is changing. Consumers demand personalized, interactive experiences. 2D is now 3D. The physical is becoming virtual. Creators monetize in new ways. Jobs are changing. The metaverse is manifesting. The convergence of immersive technologies has disrupted industries including film, architecture, engineering, construction, entertainment, commerce, arts and design.
