Our presumption is that all classrooms are validating real-world settings and systems because students are bringing their emotions and world view to the classroom. It is our job as teachers to ensure we are connecting their emotions and experiences to the learning. This session will provide attendees with tools, resources and strategies to create a welcoming and engaging learning environment. We will explore approaches to encouraging empathy, relationship-building and discover kindness initiatives. Participants will engage in collaborative activities, a design-thinking challenge and brainstorming practical ‘use-it-Monday’ applications and more. Each strategy will employ affordable and accessible apps, resources or websites appropriate for participants.
