Wow!! What an amazing start to the conference, it was so amazing to be able to share my journey so far and connect with other educators in a different country who are grappling with the same challenges!!
Some of the #TopTipTakeaways from this session were:
- Even when you want to help everyone else, think about how it is impacting you
- Sleep, sleep, sleep
- Have fun!
- Enjoy your time off - when you get it haha
People were also really excited about using memes in the classoom. Here is the website I used for this workshop but you can find one that suits you and use it in the classroom as a fun starter activity to build oral language and note taking!
Although we do not know what the future holds I feel we have to attempt to understand what qualities and skills will be needed/desired to be successful adults: creative, risk takers who can self regulate and adapt to a changing environment (with confidence or resilience?). - That's my thoughts anyways. Helping children to accept and understand what ‘comfortable with being uncomfortable so you are prepared for anything’ means.
