Digital Learning Annual Conference

February 7, 2024

In this session, we delve into the synergistic relationship between Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) and Artificial Intelligence (AI), highlighting the revolutionary impact of this convergence on modern education. As we navigate the frontier of AI-integrated learning, we will discuss the role of SEL in preparing students not just academically, but also emotionally and socially, for a future where they will coexist with AI.

First, we will explore how Generative AI tools are transforming SEL, discussing AI chatbots capable of teaching empathy, managing stress, and resolving conflicts through interactive scenarios. We’ll demonstrate existing methods to integrate this technology into learning environments and share insights into where the technology is headed.

This session will then underscore the importance of SEL in guiding students effectively in the AI era. As AI takes over technical tasks, the distinctly human ability to connect and navigate complex social-emotional landscapes will become more valuable. Educators must emphasize developing these competencies, preparing students to leverage AI benefits while maintaining their own humanity.

Join us to unpack strategies for integrating SEL in AI-based education, preparing our learners for a future where emotional intelligence and technological prowess go hand in hand. We hope that together, we can shape not just technologically skilled, but also emotionally resilient individuals, ready for the world of AI.
