Despite confusion over what exactly social and emotional learning (SEL) is and what this set of skills should be called, research is clear that SEL can help support the academic, personal, and professional development of young people. Building upon a session at the 2017 Ready By 21 Conference in Austin, TX, this webinar will highlight national research and best practices from around the country to explore:
· The value of afterschool settings in cultivating SEL;
· The ways in which SEL can align with 21st century/employability skills over time;
· What developmentally-appropriate social and emotional skill-building looks like in practice;
· The relationship between afterschool program quality and the measurement of SEL practices for the purposes of continuous improvement;
· How SEL in afterschool settings aligns with other common community goals along the continuum of services for young people; and
· The ways in which afterschool can complement in-school SEL to ensure that all kids are ready for college, work, and life.
This session is presented in partnership with the American Youth Policy Forum.

Coding is an essential 21st century language, but coding alone won’t be enough to prepare today’s students for tomorrow’s careers. What students are able to DO with code will be what matters. Students will need to be creative problem solvers in order to truly be ready for whatever lies ahead. By engaging students in STEAM as well as coding, educators will help prepare students to be creative problem solvers no matter what careers come their way.
In this can’t-miss edWebinar, you’ll hear from Jon Samuelson, Innovation Strategist at Beaverton School District, Beaverton, OR, who is actively combining coding with STEAM learning objectives. Get tips and tricks on integrating coding and STEAM plus lots of ideas that you can try in your classroom, makerspace, or school.
There will be time to get your questions answered after the presentation. This session is designed for administrators, principals, teachers, librarians, and coaches who serve students in grades 3-8, but anyone interested in coding and STEAM learning is invited to attend this live, interactive event. Join us to learn how to get your students future ready with coding and STEAM!
