50 - Learning Self-Regulation in a Virtual Setting
Limited Capacity seats available

After March 2020, districts across the state embarked upon the virtual education system journey. Instruction and student support (telehealth, tele-counseling, remote food preparation...) were delivered virtually. In the world of social-emotional learning, calming spaces to help promote self-regulation in a brick-and-mortar setting were just gaining traction as a SEL practice when, again, virtual became the only option. Virtual calming spaces found their place, although still evolving, as the option to promote self-regulation.
