We use the word ‘resilience’ all the time. We all want to be resilient and to build resilience in others. But what does the word ‘resilience’ actually mean?
This session will use neuroscience, biology, and psychology to unpack what resilience actually looks and feels like. This way we can recognise when it exists, and also learn how to create/build it in ourselves and others.
We will also understand how our modern environment is often limiting the development of resilience. Through this recognition, we can take steps to mitigate this.
Rather than some major undertaking, building resilience is about ensuring we create multiple moments of tolerable stress, within a supportive, attuned relationship. And the exciting news is, that we are doing it, we are raising resilience every day in our environments. We just need to do it more explicitly and accurately.
The information in this session will help us all, it is for ourselves and those we support.
What you'll learn
- What resilience ‘looks like’
- What can impact the development of resilience
- How we build resilience in ourselves and others
Those who have the capacity to build attuned relationships with tamariki and rangitahi, and the desire to increase resilience in them.
Quality sleep is vitally important for our well-being. Good sleep improves exam results, lowers rates of mental illness and aggression in school students.
In the last 30 years scientists have discovered significant changes in the teenage brain. One of these changes involves sleeping patterns for teenagers.
This webinar will give you an overview of why sleep is so important for teenagers and how to help your students get better sleep. The material will cover the latest scientific findings in the field of sleep research.
What you'll learn
Understand the science of how good sleep improves academic performance and lowers stress.
Understand what optimal sleep looks like for teenagers.
How to encourage good sleeping behaviour in teenagers.
Anyone who works with young people in an intermediate or secondary school setting.
With the expectation of Digital Technologies being taught in all classrooms in 2020, it is important to have some tools in your toolbox to support this.
In this webinar, Toni will explore the question… How might digital technologies supersize our current teaching and learning programme?
This is part 1 of a 2 part series. This part will look at the first strand of the Digital Technologies curriculum: Progress outcome “Computational thinking”.
We will explore ways to integrate this strand into literacy, numeracy and almost every other curriculum areas as well as how digital technologies aligns with the key competencies. This webinar is designed to be as relevant and practical as possible with the aim for you to come away with a range of ideas and strategies to integrate digital technologies into your classroom. It includes ideas with little to no resources as well as some ideas to use with the resources you have.
What you'll learn
- An understanding of computational thinking, why it is important and how it fits in the classroom.
- Examples and lessons on how to teach computational thinking.
- Practical ideas you can use in the classroom right now whether you teach year 0 or year 8.
Teachers and school leaders who would like to develop a more practical understanding of how to implement the digital technologies curriculum and add value to their current teaching and learning programmes.
