Upcoming Webinar to Discuss How Social Emotional Learning, Blended Learning Can Help ELLs Succeed

An upcoming webinar hosted by the International Association for K-12 Online Learning (iNACOL) will be focused on how teachers can use blended and online learning to teach social emotional learning to best help English Language Learners (ELLs) succeed.

"There is a massive and persistent ELL achievement gap in the United States. Traditional ELL education approaches have focused on language acquisition and content knowledge, yet ELL students have unique social emotional needs. This webinar will examine social emotional skills and the importance for ELL programs using blended and online learning to close the graduation, learning and social gaps for ELL students,” said iNACOL in a statement.

The webinar, titled “Increase ELL Success Through Blended and Online Social Emotional Learning” will take place April 21 from 6-7 p.m. ET.

Mawi Asgedom, an Ethiopian refugee and former ELL who graduated from Harvard, will be the webinar’s presenter.

For educators interested in prepping before the webinar, Asgedom recommended through his Twitter checking out SuperELL.com, which hosts a blog that provides advice to educators looking to better connect with ELL students.

 

One of the latest posts, “Connecting with ELL Families: Turning Challenges into Success” by Alea Thompson, for example, provides educators with ideas on how to bridge cultural divides, engage parents, and overall better communicate.
