Making Social-Emotional Learning Tangible for Students — At a Distance
Editor’s note: Learning in the Time of Coronavirus is a multi-part video interview series where, in each episode, we interview folks with a unique perspective on how Covid-19 is affecting education across the world – and how we can keep learning in spite of it.
In this episode, we talk to Steve Mesler, Olympic Gold Medalist and Founder of Classroom Champions. He talks to us about his non-profit and the work that his athlete-mentors are doing in schools across America and Canada to make social-emotional learning tangible. He also makes predictions about the lasting impacts of the pandemic on education.
