Before they help the students, teachers have to help themselves. That is just one of the many insightful points Alia Jackson, President of 321insight presses on this episode. Social Emotional Learning, once maybe an afterthought before the pandemic, is now first and foremost in the minds of educators. Alia breaks down how to do it. She has over twenty years of experience working with technology training and implementation in K-12 school districts across the country. From designing, implementing, and managing professional development programs, to planning and rolling out large scale initiatives in school districts, her experience helps make sure 321insight’s products are effective and easy to use.
Nearly 45% of today’s K-12 students have had 3 or more Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), which is enough to impact learning and behavior. Add to that the traumatic experiences caused or exacerbated by COVID-19, and we are certain to face unprecedented levels of dysregulation, stress, and trauma in the 20-21 school year. Whether your district is reopening buildings, continuing distance learning, or a hybrid of both, staff will need not only a trauma-informed mindset but also a skill set focused on action to build student resilience.
