Gaming SEL: How Digital Games Connect Us

September 20, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT

Games enable children to practice emotions in spaces that are free from actualized consequences. With thoughtful guidance, games can help children manage emotions, perspective-take, demonstrate empathic concern, and exhibit prosocial behaviors.

Join Matthew Farber, Ed.D., Assistant Professor of Technology, Innovation, and Pedagogy at the University of Northern Colorado where he founded the Gaming SEL Lab, as he shares the importance of leveraging games for SEL on impacting school climate and building happier classrooms. Dr. Farber will share the research behind how games help develop SEL skills, the current landscape and trends in games that support SEL skill-building, and some examples of well-designed SEL games. You will walk away with a better understanding for how games assist with SEL skill-building and resources to explore for integrating games into SEL programming.
