Back in 2019, we had an idea to create the Student Behavior Blog as a way to disseminate our work and initiate discussions with our community about issues they face in supporting students’ well-being. Our Behavior Research Team swung into action to make that dream a reality—and the response has been incredible. Our team not only engaged with educators, community members, and mental health service providers to co-author blogs about their challenges and accomplishments on the ground, but we also compiled helpful resources from our colleagues to promote collective work in the field and across the country.
In this Knowledge Alliance (KA) blog post, KA’s summer intern, Julianna Collado, met with Michelle Woodbridge and Nancy Perez from SRI International to discuss their work identifying and implementing better mental health support for educators. Please read the full blog post on the Knowledge Alliance’s site.
The imperatives facing public education right now—given all the issues laid bare by the pandemic and centuries of barriers systemically rooted in racism and White supremacy—require complex equity-and relationally driven partnership approaches.
Successful early learning transitions for children, with and without disabilities, require collaboration and discussion. Families, current providers or teachers, and new providers or teachers all come together to plan the support children need to move to the next stage of their learning and development.
SRI Education researchers are excited share their work at the 2022 American Education Research Association (AERA) Annual Meeting from APRIL 21-26, 2022 in San Diego, CA. Our work covers a range of topics: early childhood learning and development, disability and inclusion, multilingual learners, student behavior and well-being, teaching quality, digital learning, STEM and computer science, school and district reform, literacy and language arts, and college and career pathways.
