Why use AR for social emotional learning?

Research findings

Academic and social-emotional learning takes place best in different ways for different students. So, educational experiences marked by instruction that uses different modalities are most likely to reach all children and allow them to build their skills and feel that the classroom environment is suited to their preferred way of learning. Modalities include modelling, role- playing, art, dance, drama, working with materials and manipulatives, and digital media, computer technology, and the Internet. Also important for sound instruction are regular and constructive feedback, discussions that include open-ended questioning, and frequent reminders to use social-emotional skills in all aspects of school life.
