Webinar: The importance of mental wellbeing in a learning environment

Friday, February 12, 2021

Head back to school with the keys to mental wellbeing and readiness to learn.

 

What comes to mind when you think of “mental wellbeing” and “readiness to learn”?

Is it a healthy brain? Motivation to perform well at school? Perhaps it’s excellent classroom focus, good self-regulation, a nurturing home environment or a supportive teacher?

 

What can impact a learner’s mental wellbeing and readiness to learn?

Is teacher wellbeing linked to learner wellbeing?

And, as we return to school in 2021, what can we as educators do to best support mental wellbeing and readiness to learn for our learners in the classroom?

 

Join Pearson consultant psychologist Stewart D’Silva and Jared Cooney Horvath (PhD, MEd) as they give teachers and special educators the answers to these questions and more.
