Quick Launch

NAIS Webinars

NAIS holds many opportunities for online professional development each year, with a wide array of topics that include everything from student wellbeing to a school’s legal needs. Our webinars delve into the latest trends and resources to help you address your everyday school challenges, as well as training that will educate and sustain both the individual and the school community.
Online professional development events are free, but registration is required, as space can be limited. We invite you to join us and we welcome any ideas for future webinars and feedback. Please feel free to contact us by emailing

Building a Culture of Empathy in Digital Age Schools

Join us in an online conversation with Dr. Devorah Heitner, author of Screenwise: Helping Kids Thrive (and Survive) in their Digital World, as we explore the role of empathy in our digital communities.  Participants will think critically about current approaches to digital citizenship in schools and examine the social and emotional impact social media can have on our students.  This online professional development event will also address many of our students' most pressing challenges with friendship in the digital age, such as fears of missing out and anonymity.
