By Rola Tibshirani

This podcast invites educators to connect with many groups, organizations or individual educators to bring the learning from inside the classroom to connect with real-world projects. It also shares the pedagogical process and the purpose of connection based learning.

Patricia Fiorino shares how Social Emotional Learning is part of the academics. SEL skills are embedded in the curriculum. All students have needs and strengths, navigating students and teachers to be an environment to feel safe. When SEL is implemented students apply positive strategies, students’ academic engagement is up and students see themselves as problem solvers.
