As students return to in-person learning, embedding play with social and emotional learning (SEL) across the curriculum can be key. Games offer many rich opportunities in supporting SEL skill development. We will be covering:

  • How can teachers use games to teach the foundational social and emotional skills they need for students to practice in their classrooms?

  • Why games are ideal for this

  • What the research says

  • Examples of games that teachers can use along with practical tips for using those games

  • How to fit these practices into busy academic Schedules

Matthew Farber, Ed.D. is Assistant Professor, Technology, Innovation and Pedagogy and Coordinator for K-12 and Secondary Education at University of Northern Colorado.
