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 development of resilience
  • How we build resilience in ourselves and others

Target audience

Those who have the capacity to build attuned relationships with tamariki and rangitahi, and the desire to increase resilience in them.

Learners come to life when they connect with the people they’re near and engage with material that strikes a chord with their soul. A culturally engaged classroom is where teachers can make personal connections with their students by providing them with material that is relevant and real. When learners are at the centre of discussion and thinking, creativity flows.

This workshop will provide an overarching outline of the key qualities of inclusive leaders and how pivotal diversity and inclusion has become over the years in developing strategic goals of a school as well as building competent and confident staff who can connect with students and families from all walks of life.

The teacher who knows their learner and provides a wide variety of stimulating activities to connect the learner with real life matter creates a classroom that is engaged and inclusive.

What you'll learn

  1. Understand the relevance of diversity and inclusion for schools in Aotearoa NZ
  2. Be introduced to key concepts such as cultural intelligence and unconscious bias
  3. Outline some key signature traits of inclusive leaders

Target audience

This webinar is designed for everyone in the school community – this includes the Board of Trustees, Principals, Senior Leaders, Teachers, Beginning teachers, office staff and administrators. It is beneficial for everyone connected to the school.

A successful transition from ECE to primary school is critical for contributing towards a positive learning journey for children. Relationships are central to a child experiencing an affirming transition experience, however an absence of studies that investigate what kinds of relationships and how they can be established necessitates the need for empirical research in this area. My doctoral study fills this void by exploring "How relationships with people, places and things are established during the transition from an early childhood setting to school?". My presentation will share key findings from my research.

What you'll learn

  • Practical ideas to implement around the transition
  • Share current research about transition practices
  • Discussion points to share with colleagues about transition practices

Target audience

Early Childhood Education teachers and new entrant teachers and leadership in each setting.

I will describe how each of these qualities contributes to play’s educative power. Children acquire social, emotional, and intellectual skills in play that cannot be taught in the classroom.

What you'll learn

  1. Definition of play.
  2. What children learn in play.
  3. The harm of play deprivation.

Target audience

Parents, teachers, everyone concerned about children.
