By Lisa Johnson "When you start focusing on oral and written communication, you naturally begin to focus on visual literacy and social media. And at the heart of all forms of communication is social emotional learning which is essentially the ability to identify emotions, recognize strengths, set goals, manage stress, take perspectives, work on a team, and identify and solve problems. While the title of my book is "Cultivating Communication in the Classroom: Future-Ready Skills for Secondary Students", the core of all of the communication channels I focus on (e.g. email etiquette, collaboration, presentation skills, portfolios, social media... etc...) is really social emotional learning. This infographic spotlights 15 of the activities (classified by their SEL index) that are featured within in the publication." Lisa Jonson has 14+ years of edu experience.
