The Coronavirus is certainly shaking things up. It’s early on in the cycle of school closures, social distancing and home-based learning and people are just plain confused.
Folks deal with these types of events differently. There is a tremendous amount of pressure to stay put, not travel, hoard toilet paper and stock up on Chardonnay. So I thought it might be helpful to offer you a permission slip to slow down, calm down and take this pandemic day by day.
There are so many opportunities lurking behind every bored moment, teaching challenge and frustrations. You never really know when you’ll hit your stride of capturing moments for your students and children during this disruption.
This episode shares insights on how boredom is the biggest precursor to creativity. How pulling back maybe the best way to ignite children’s creativity.
WHAT YOU’LL LEARN:
– What I did to develop and nurture my own creativity when I was a child.
– How giving your child unstructured time to think about what they like will lead to so many good things
– A simple exercise you can start using today with younger students
– Why you don’t need a lot of tech or equipment to connect with your students while they’re at home
