Turnaround for Children Joins Digital Promise League of Innovative Schools Webinar

Turnaround for Children Vice President of Partner Impact, Amy Nicholson, joined the Digital Promise League of Innovative School Social Emotional Learning (SEL) cohort meeting for a webinar on February 21, 2020.

The meeting, which brought together a nationwide group of school district superintendents and leaders, was focused on understanding the impact of context, and specifically the negative context of adversity, on student learning and development, as well as the immense power that educators and systems leaders have to help buffer stress and support all learners.

District leaders left the conversation with an understanding of how biology and context work together to drive individual learning and development, and reflected on their role in creating positive contexts that support healthy development.
