The Missing Piece: Addressing the Social and Emotional Needs of Students in a Changing World

Details

The need for social and emotional learning in Australian schools is evident more than ever before, but what are the critical elements that need to be taught? Throughout their educational journey, students not only face the daily challenges of learning they are also adapting to the complex demands of growth and development, significant brain restructuring and now new environmental impacts such as online technology. Deficits in social and emotional learning throughout key stages of development, can lead to long-term learning and behaviour difficulties. During this session we will identify critical stages of development that impact students’ journey and link the key social and emotional learning areas needed to support their progress. Take away practical strategies to address the real needs of your students.
