SEL in Digital Life Resource Center

Support your students' social and emotional learning as they navigate the digital world, with our collection of Social and Emotional Learning in Digital Life resources.

Technology is changing the social and emotional landscape that students navigate every day, from how they express themselves to how they communicate with friends and family. With the right support, students can learn how to integrate technology into their lives to promote their own well-being and to be a positive influence in their communities. This collection of CASEL-aligned quick activities, family conversation starters, and accompanying professional development resources is an addition to our free K–12 Digital Citizenship Curriculum that will help you promote social and emotional learning as your students navigate the digital world.
