Using Games to Assess and Personalize Your SEL Instruction

Wednesday, November 18, 2015 - 3:00-4:00 pm PST

Educators today struggle to find engaging, evidence-based social emotional learning (SEL) tools for their students -- tools that adapt to the skill level of each student, supporting and challenging them exactly where they need it. Administrators and counselors struggle with easy ways to validly assess SEL skills and screen students for Tier 2 support. In this webinar, you'll learn how personalized SEL games are uniquely meeting the needs of both Tier 1 and Tier 2 students. You'll hear the evidence that the skills these games improve in students -- such as emotion regulation, empathy, impulse control, and cooperation -- transfer to the real world. You'll also hear the latest research on game-based SEL assessment, including how games are being used in schools to easily assess SEL skills and to screen students for Tier 2 support at scale. You'll experience how games use formative and performance-based methods to produce real-time, reliable data on students' SEL competencies. Join Jessica Berlinski, chief impact officer of personalized learning games, in an engaging hour packed with the latest research, use cases, and gameplay and walk away with a toolbox full of evidence-based games you can put into practice immediately in your classroom or small group. This event is geared toward teachers, counselors, and administrators, specifically at the elementary and middle school levels.
