SEL in Digital Life Resource Center

Support your students' social and emotional learning as they navigate the digital world.

Technology impacts students' social and emotional well-being, 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 well-being and be a positive influence in their communities.

We created this resource center to give you everything you need to implement SEL in digital life in your school or classroom. Here you'll find CASEL-aligned quick activities, family conversation starters, and professional development resources, all of which align with the core themes and lessons from our free K–12 Digital Citizenship Curriculum.
