We're getting right into it this week.
After writing our recent essay series on stress and time management, we've been keyed into conversations about creating positive, supportive environments for students. That's how we found today's story from The Washington Post, which posits that a public health approach to chronic student stress has potential. This piece focuses on the children in classrooms who are suffering from trauma - the ones who desparately need positive, supportive environments. Important story.
Beyond that, we've been reading stories from the Boston Globe about digital learning, as well as EdTech Magazine's article on where digital skills are truly built. Also another good Atlantic article on cognitive psychology that's worth your time.
