Positive Education in the 21st Century

 

Positive education for the 21st century | John Doran

I just wanted to share this video with everyone as we get close to starting the new year. I think it shares some ideas that are worth exploring as we continue to learn and grow as educators. 

I think this was originally posted before the pandemic, but it recently came back to me as I plan for the 2022 - 23 school year. It might be more important now than it even was then?

What do you think? Please share in the comments below?

If you are looking for a bit more positive inspirations, here are a few books and resources that might be worth exploring.


Collection of Digital Collaboration Resources for Teachers and Learners

My "why" has always focused on how the 4 Cs can be used to support student growth and engagement in my classroom. I believe creativity, critical thinking, communication, and collaboration are essential in all classrooms.

Today, I wanted to share our update collection of digital resources to support collaborative student engagement.

Three Books to Inspire and Re-energize Educators


I share quite a few books that I've read or have on my reading list. Today I am going to do something a little different and share three books I don't think I am going to read. I've heard they are great books, but they probably don't fit me current mindset. 

These books connected to falling or re-falling in love with being a teacher and learner have come highly recommended by my PLN. I am curious about all three, but right now I still love being an educator. I don't think I have space on my reading list for these today, but I wanted to share with anyone who is looking for a bit of inspiration to keep going. My plan is to save these just in case I ever feel the need to overcome burnout.
