Every community in America has turned to schools to sustain relationships and connectedness during the COVID-19 crisis. This archived webinar explores the practical realities and research foundations of how distance learning offers both opportunities, and imperatives, to re-establish relationships during school closure—and learn some of the new ways that students, parents, and educators are connecting to advance the work of schools.
Now as much as ever, students need schools to attend to both social-emotional and academic development in unison. After a brief overview of foundational research on the role of relationships in learning and thriving, this archived webinar lifts up innovations and early learning from leaders in schools and systems across the country.
