Well-Being and Self-Regulation in the Elementary Years

This session will look at practical ways to use and understand the neuroscience of learning to create safe inviting classrooms where learning will be optimized.
We now know we only deeply engage in materials and learning that we care about, that we have an emotional connection to. How do we create this for all our learners? Through dialogue and interaction we will create pathways for connection.
