Join an Online Community of SEL Learners
One of the Covid-19 bright spots for me as an education consultant at the non-profit Collaborative Classroom has been the rich partnering work I've observed. School and district leaders have used technology to convene groups that, because of physical distance, would never have connected. They are being vulnerable and asking questions, sharing resources and potential solutions in service of the communities for whom they care so much.
One such group is the Collaborative Classroom Community on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/groups/collabclass). The group predates Covid, but it has become so much more robust as more educators come together virtually looking for curricular support, technological solutions, ideas for engaging families, etc. I have especially appreciated the Facebook Live conversations. Some of the topics are first-apply-your-own-oxygen-mask in nature; there have been conversations on teaching while parenting or attending to self care. Many others address student-facing aspects of remote learning. I know many educators are looking forward to the ideas and considerations they'll glean from the May 19th conversation on saying goodbye to students. I appreciate the timeliness of the topics, the respectful and nuanced understanding the presenters bring, and the rich chat discussion.
