Empowering Students with Social-Emotional Learning Skills for Life

March 5, 2024

As parents, educators, and within our communities, we all want our students to thrive – academically, socially, and emotionally. That’s why Social Emotional Learning (SEL) Week is so important. SEL provides students with the vital skills to manage emotions, show empathy, build healthy relationships, and make caring, responsible decisions. 

At LifeBrand, we believe that “SEL can help all young people and adults thrive personally and academically, develop and maintain positive relationships, become lifelong learners, and contribute to a more caring and just world.” (https://casel.org/fundamentals-of-sel/) Here are three key points to understand about the importance of Social Emotional Learning:

  1. SEL is foundational for success that helps students build self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship, and responsible decision-making skills. 


  1. Numerous studies show that SEL in schools leads to improved academic outcomes, lower rates of stress and anxiety, and better behavior, both in and out of the classroom.


  1. SEL should be collaborative. Effective SEL happens through the collaboration of schools, families, and communities to create nurturing environments tailored to students’ needs.


LifeBrand is proud to contribute to this vital work through our innovative Nationally Accredited Social Media Literacy & Wellness Curriculum and e-Course, aligned with ISTE Digital Citizenship Standards, the SEL Framework, and other key educational standards!
