A5: #SEL in education is crucial, when you look at George Couros's 8 characteristics of an Innovator's Mindset, they are all focused around SEL skills. To have an Innovator's Mindset we must have those "soft" skills.
A1: Social emotional learning is LEARNING, and goes hand in hand with the content and skills we teach. It is about empowering kids to be in control of their emotions and bodies, to empathize with others, to communicate effectively, to problem solve respectfully. #masterychat
A2. I love to consistently recognize the efforts and accomplishments of both students and staff. I feel that there needs to be more recognition in education. It builds stronger relationships and builds confidence and morale throughout the school #masterychat
A3: In #googleClassroom edit an assignment and uncheck a student's name. Now use the Create button to reuse post and only assign it to that student. Now you can modify the due date or directions to address issues you need to address. And it's private. #masterychat
The L in SEL is for “learning.” Done well, SEL empowers students to choose how they want to approach themselves, their relationships, their work, and their environment. It’s not about what’s convenient for us. It’s about what’s important to them. #MasteryChat A1
A2) My first yr as AP, I wanted to make every kid that came to me cry about what they had done. Quickly I learned that getting them to stop crying was much more helpful, important, and impactful for the situation. Finding the antecedent was HUGE! #MasteryChat
A3: I love student #Podcasting as a way to help amplify #SEL!
This works great on a student and teacher level!
Adding experts in as guests turns it into meaningful learning!
Here is one student #podcastedu:

A1: SEL is like "soft skills," but research-based, and incredibly important. It's how we prepare students to be not just strong learners, but also positive and productive members of friend groups, work teams, communities, and society as a whole. #masterychat
My students + I really think about #SEL in three dimensions:
👉Developing social awareness
👉Building meaningful relationships
👉Responsible decision making + problem-solving.
These are the dimensions we talk most about during our #SEL conferences. #MasteryChat
A2: Asking questions, building relationships, listening way more than we speak. We can learn so much by being quiet and opeing our ears. When we are there for them, they will open up to us. #Masterychat https://t.co/yABnJeyFTk
Q4: As the frequency of tech use continues to increase, how do you employ proper #digcit (digital citizenship) to foster social awareness and regulate self-management?
Q3: What are some #edtech tools that assist in amplifying #SEL, and how do you use it?
A1: SEL is adults & Ss learning how to properly communicate feelings, emotions, set & achieve goals, make responsible decisions, show empathy——“character development” that positively impacts learning #masterychat https://t.co/qj9adMfE3a
One of my favorite protocols from #2for1Teaching is called the Emotions & Values Audit. Students review academic content in terms of emotions it made them feel, and then they connect those emotions to their values. #MasteryChat A2 https://t.co/PDtkGjJqTJ https://t.co/wniLnqup7v
A1: Learning the practice of recognizing and regulating our social emotional selves. Also being able to recognize issues or concerns in others and assist in their regulation. #masterychat #sel
We have no choice. Being an educator does not mean we only teach content, our overarching goal is to teach the whole person to become the strongest, best person possible. What we do and say leaves an impact, even if not seen in the direct moment. Make it count. #masterychat
A1- SEL is the process through which ss and adults -
*️⃣Understand & manage emotions
*️⃣Set & achieve goals
*️⃣Feel and show empathy for others
*️⃣Establish & maintain relationships
A5: I almost feel like if you don't incorporate #SEL in #education, why are you even an educator? We educate the whole child and aren't just trying increase test scores. We want them to be well-rounded, free-thinking tiny humans who feel safe to grow. #masterychat
A1: SEL means checking in with students to make sure they are in the frame of mind to learn my content. #masterychat
Kristen from Illinois just dropping in to say hi. Secondary education teacher; author of Differentiated Instruction in the Teaching Profession #DIteaching #masterychat https://t.co/gUK69Q5r2H
A1 SEL...taking the time to understand, to care, to bond, to nurture, to meet needs before expecting learning to occur. #masterychat
To me, it is one of the keys to success in the classroom and in life. #masterychat
A1: for me and my students #SEL means learning about our emotions and what our antecedent is before we feel certain big emotions and how we can handle those emotions. #masterychat
Agreed, Nelann! It's jarring when kids push back against freedom & agency. I try to remind myself that it's a lot harder (cognitively & socially) to be a student in a student-centered classroom as opposed to being a student in a teacher-centered classroom #masterychat
A1: SEL are those important skills needed to get along with others and to regulate emotions in an appropriate manner. #masterychat
It’s life and life skills. It’s making kids feel safe #masterychat
A2: In order to employ #SEL and #agency in my classes, I try to incorporate a lot of choice and voice. I want all of my students to be able to share their voice and use many instructional tools like @PearDeck @Flipgrid
and @Padlet to do so. #masterychat
