Users of Discovery Education’s K-12 platform can discover all this content and more in the SEL Center located within the Discovery Education K-12 learning platform. Created by the SEL Coalition, the Social-Emotional Learning Center presents a curated collection of hundreds of resources designed to support educators as they integrate SEL into core instruction and help students develop social and emotional competencies. The SEL Center includes resources focused on educator professional development and school culture including microlearnings, instructional strategies and ready-to-use slide shows. Designed for all K-12 students and educators, the Center features multi-modal, student-facing digital content aligned to the five SEL competencies from Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL) and includes Virtual Field Trips, videos, podcasts, mindfulness exercises, songs, and reading passages.
The SEL Center is made possible in part through partnerships with The Allstate Foundation, the National AfterSchool Association, and Ask, Listen, Learn.

“The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that 37% of youth have had poor mental health since 2020,” said Beth Meyer, Vice President of Social Impact at Discovery Education. “This data points to the fact that we are at a critical point in K-12 education right now regarding the challenge of student mental wellness. Partnerships for creating resources supporting student mental wellness– like those featured here – are more important than ever, and we all have a role in supporting this important work.”
