The proven, research-based social emotional learning (SEL) solution earned the recognition in the “product or service setting a trend” category.

The EdTech Awards recognizes people in and around education for outstanding contributions in transforming education through technology to enrich the lives of learners everywhere. The annual program, which is now in its 11th year, is the largest recognition program in all of education technology. Featuring edtech’s best and brightest, it shines a spotlight on cool tools, inspiring leaders, and innovative trendsetters across the K-12, higher education, and skills and workforce sectors.

“All of us at 7 Mindsets are delighted to receive this recognition from the EdTech Awards — particularly this year, when the social emotional health of students is top of mind for so many educators,” said Lupita Knittel, president of 7 Mindsets, the leader in online SEL solutions. “What separates 7 Mindsets from other PreK–12 SEL programs is that it nurtures the mindsets of both students and educators. By creating a common language of SEL beliefs and making small shifts in the way students view the world and their future in it, educators can help create positive, sustainable transformations at the individual level and across the entire school community.”

7 Mindsets helps K-12 districts and schools create a positive, productive environment that impacts student achievement, behavior, and attendance, as well as other indicators like grit and resilience. The easy-to-implement SEL curriculum includes yearlong courses for grades PreK–12. Each course is designed to be delivered by teachers in 30 minutes per week or less and includes ways to integrate SEL with core subject matter throughout the day. The curriculum is modular and adaptable, and can be configured to work with any school schedule for both on-site and virtual learning.
