The Proven Benefits of Social Learning
July 28 @ 12:00 pm - 12:45 pm PDT
Learn about the proven benefits of Social Learning from Educational Specialists and other parents.
Learning is a remarkably complex process that is influenced by a wide variety of factors. Social learning environments play a key role in the development of both social-emotional and cognitive skills in learners of all ages. Social learning has been notably linked to building resilient learners and creating strong self-efficacy in students.
Social Learning Theory is the idea that people learn from each other through observation, imitation, and modeling. It was introduced by Albert Bandura in the 1970s and has been used by educators, parents, and specialists ever since.
In this webinar, you will hear from experts on the proven benefits of social learning and why these learned skills directly relate to success both inside and outside the classroom. Topics include:
- Building relationships through peer observation
- Developing soft skills for better social interactions
- Increasing awareness & tolerance for other perspectives
- Building confidence & reducing anxiety
