Infobase’s SEL Toolkit

Empowering Educators, Parents, and Students

SEL is more important now than ever for students, both in school settings and in their communities. Students, teachers, and families all benefit from social and emotional learning (SEL)—it has been described as the key to being a successful human. Long-term benefits of SEL include better academic performance, improved attitudes and behaviors, reduced emotional stress, and better workplace teamwork and success.

Check out our resources on SEL topics—and so much more!—with content supporting the following five competencies of social and emotional learning:

  1. Self-awareness
  2. Self-management
  3. Social awareness
  4. Relationship skills
  5. Responsible decision-making

Empowering Administrators Through Social and Emotional Learning


Administrators are experiencing new challenges to meet the needs of teachers, school staff, parents, and students. In order to create conditions for students to effectively engage in social and emotional learning, adults themselves need to feel empowered, supported, and valued. This calls on administrators to foster a supportive staff community and promote adult SEL skill development. This first session of a two-part workshop on social and emotional learning (SEL) is tailored specifically for administrators and the unique challenges that they encounter as education leaders.
