    Fostering Resilience Learners - a 5-hour asynchronous seminar for all educators

    More than 25 percent of American youth experience a serious traumatic event by their sixteenth birthday, and many children suffer multiple and repeated traumas which can seriously impact their cognitive, physical, emotional, and social development. Staff may be unaware of the specific traumatic events that have occurred with each child, and school environments may inadvertently compound the impacts of trauma. Creating resilience-fostering environments in school can lower the impact of trauma and enhance the factors that provide the foundation for better health, academic success, and positive interactions. When school staff learn effective responses to student trauma and how to help instill resiliency skills necessary to thrive in the classroom, children have better learning outcomes - in school and in life. Register in Frontline for the online seminar  Fostering Resilient Learners and earn 5 CTLE hours upon successful completion.

    ELT online seminars are convenient and flexible to accommodate the needs of busy educators.

    This 5-hour asynchronous seminar offers SEL strategies for all educators

    Growing up today is not easy. Children’s bodies and brains are rapidly growing and changing. They are assailed with new ideas, technology and peer/social/media influences daily. Many students today are distracted, under immense pressure and suffer from mental health issues more than ever before. Before students can be successful academically, their social and emotional needs must be met. Social-emotional learning (SEL) is a critical part of a child’s development as it is the process by which they acquire and apply the knowledge, skills and attitudes to increase self-awareness and self-management, social awareness, relationship skills and responsible decision making. SEL focuses on the competencies that underscore one’s ability to be available to learn. Nurturing students’ social and emotional development will help them acquire skills to effectively deal with stress. Students who can manage their emotions, control their impulses, focus their attention, and calm themselves will be able to learn and achieve academically. Social-Emotional Learning (SEL): Teaching the Whole Child provides an excellent overview of SEL and offers many evidence based SEL strategies that all staff can embed directly within any learning moment.

    ELT online seminars are convenient and flexible to accommodate the needs of busy educators.

    This seminar can be used toward fulfilling Continuing Teacher & Leader Education (CTLE) requirements as NYSUT ELT is an approved provider.

    What will school schedules look like when the new academic year commences in September? Which teaching methods are appropriate for continued school building closure? How can teachers compensate for the “COVID melt” or the “COVID slide” and meet students where they are academically and take them where they need to go? Whether based on the effects of trauma, the impact of the digital divide or differences in access to educational supports, any lost learning time from distance-learning is detrimental to students and will worsen if not immediately addressed.
    ELT has compiled a lengthy list of valuable training, from graduate courses to in-person and online seminars, on critical topics so educators are prepared to engage, instruct, assess, and support students where they are.

    • Assessment as a Tool - determining where students are and where they need to be.
    • Differentiating Instruction and Curriculum for Learner Needs - meeting the learning needs of all students, including vulnerable students who may have had limited or insufficient exposure to remote learning opportunities.
    • Interdisciplinary Teaching - bringing curricular programming into line to meet students where they are and transitioning students from online/remote learning back to in-person learning in a classroom.
    • Social Emotional Supports - addressing the emotional and mental health needs of students and staff and providing support, as needed.
    • Technology Training - equipping teachers with the knowledge and skills to expand the possibilities for teaching and learning.

    In compliance with New York State Education Department, NYSUT Education & Learning Trust has been approved as a sponsor to provide professional development for Continuing Teacher Leader Education (CTLE) hours.

    As students and educators gear up for the 2020-2021 school year, they will be forever changed by the COVID-19 pandemic. Schools must support the emotional well-being of students so learning can begin. Teachers require technology that is responsive and flexible for student-centered learning, whether that is fully online, in person or a mix of both. ELT is rolling out training to empower educators to successfully engage with students across multiple teaching models.

    Designed for all educators in the school community, Transforming the Lives of Students with Trauma-Informed Schools addresses how trauma and adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) impact students’ abilities to form trusting relationships, learn new concepts and self-regulate their behaviors in and out of school. The impact of early trauma on brain development and early attachment will be explored. While the topics addressed are relevant for supporting and sustaining the needs of ALL students, time will be spent examining trauma specifically experienced by ELLs such as the impact of prior experiences, pre-flight, flight and post-flight, and how to create a safe and supportive environment that is conducive to learning. The ideas presented will provide a new lens through which to see maladaptive behaviors and provide the necessary tools and strategies to support student healing and growth, both academically and social-emotionally.

    Technology has the power to fundamentally change and even reinvent how instruction is delivered, as well as how we provide appropriate instruction for students with a wide variety of needs. However, technology, like any other tool, requires knowing how and when to use it in order to maximize its efficacy and provide opportunities for true inquiry. In Redesigning Teaching Through Instructional Technology, you will explore K-12 appropriate models for working with ALL students (e.g. ELLs and students with disabilities), demonstrating when and how to strategically use technology in any scenario (e.g. classroom, hybrid, distance learning, etc.), as well as standards-based best practices for fundamentally redesigning instruction using technology across the curriculum. NOTE: This training will mainly focus on the purposeful and strategic deployment of technology to transform instruction. The online seminar, “Web-based Tools to Boost Instruction in the Classroom, Hybrid, and Distance/Remote Learning Scenarios”, will provide participants the opportunity to learn about and practice with web-based tools and digital learning resources.

    Register now for these online seminar that are only available for NYSUT members. ELT online seminars are convenient and flexible to accommodate the needs of busy educators.
    Both seminars can be used toward meeting the Language Acquisition requirement and fulfilling Continuing Teacher & Leader Education (CTLE) requirements as NYSUT ELT is an approved provider. View other ELT seminars that meet the Language Acquisition mandate.
