Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

"The growth of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) education highlights the need for our youth to acquire technical knowledge and skills to enter a rapidly evolving workforce. However, conversations about STEM usually do not include discussions regarding the cultivation of character virtues." Nick Woolf, February 2019 https://insidesel.com/2019/02/19/stem-and-sel/

Karen Peterson, Chief Executive Officer, National Girls Collaborative, Seattle, Washington, adds "Confidence plays an important role in the development of STEM competencies. The development and equitable nature of our future workforce will be built, in part, through attention to SEL and STEM strategies." https://naaweb.org/professional-development/item/501-looking-to-integrate-stem-and-sel-and-don-t-know-how

The goal of this PLN collaborative panel is to share how we integrated social and emotional learning experiences into computer science and STEM lessons and their impact on students. Through the voices of our panelists who serve diverse populations, attendees will learn about the successful and not-so-much so lessons designed to engage students to be active participants in computer science and STEM topics for grades K-12, higher education, and adult learners.

Objectives:
1. Share our experiences with participants
2. Provide a forum for educators to ask questions about integrating CS, STEM, and SEL
3. Provide resources to help participants try their own integration lessons
