Learn with the Expert: The Power of Joy, Play, and Connection in the Classroom with Roni Habib
August 25 @ 7:30 pm - 8:45 pm EDT
Happy students are more creative, collaborative, and productive. They are also more resilient and have richer lives. The number one predictor of well-being is having supportive relationships in our lives. In this interactive keynote, you will get practical activities that integrate Positive Psychology, Mindfulness, and Emotional Intelligence strategies into your pedagogy. We’ll see how these lead to supportive and caring relationships in the classroom and how to prime our students’ brains to be more ready to learn. We’ll also delve into the importance of our own well-being and learn self-regulation and mindset tools to help us face the daily challenges of being an educator. We will play, laugh, and learn a ton together and you’ll be introduced to concepts from interpersonal neurobiology to simple improv games all in the name of creating healthy relationships in your classroom.
