Character Day

If you missed the webinar social and emotional learning through media, you can catch the recording here. A brief description is included from the site below.

“How do you disseminate ideas on the science of character, social emotional learning, and flourishing in today’s world far and wide? Emmy-nominated filmmaker and founder of the Webby Awards Tiffany Shlain spoke aboutCharacter Day, a movement that unites people from all over the world to discuss these ideas. It’s now in its third year, and over 20,000 events at schools and organizations around the world have signed up for Character Day, which is set for September 22, 2016. Character Day is a free annual day where students and educators from around the world screen films on the science of character development from different perspectives. Students dive into free printed discussion materials and join an online global conversation around character and the importance of developing character strengths (resilience, grit, empathy, courage, kindness) — all rooted in evidence-based research.

 

 

In today’s 24/7 digital world, parents are concerned about the messages their kids are soaking up from the media they consume.  In this recorded webinar, viewers also will hear from Dr. Yalda T Uhls about Common Sense Media’s new rating system which identifies movies and TV shows that teach children character strengths. Yalda shared how Common Sense Media’s new rating tools help parents discover, use, and choose movies and TV shows that portray positive character strengths and life skills in a way that experts have determined can support kids’ development.”
