Each month we publish blogs and several newsletters full of digital learning, funding, professional growth, social media, and STEM resources. Below are items from our blogs and newsletters that educators turned to the most in August.

1. Reading Curriculum That Embeds Social-Emotional Learning
This research-based program embeds social-emotional learning throughout its modules by developing students’ decision making, empathy, and goal setting abilities, all while increasing their reading skills.

2. Lessons for Navigating the Digital World
Access a series of lesson modules designed to help young people develop skills needed to navigate the digital world, critically consume information, and responsibly produce and share content.

3. Program Integrating Coding with Music Theory
This program provides an innovative learning experience by blending computer-coding concepts with music theory. Beginning coders follow guided tutorials to instantly apply computer-programming languages (Python or JavaScript) to create loops, construct beats, and generate sound effects.

4. SPOTLIGHT! On Executive Function and Social-Emotional Learning
Without the ability to organize, control impulses, and adapt to change students will struggle with both social and academic learning. Research indicates, however, that it is possible to explicitly teach these skills through a variety of techniques. Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) techniques and related Mindfulness activities can support student learning.

5. Artifacts from 21st–Century Online Culture
The Library of Congress debuted two collections featuring artifacts from 21st-century online culture. The Webcomics Web Archive features popular comics. The Web Cultures Web Archive has everything from urban legends to image macros, emoji to lolcats.
