To teachers in the school system: You are under enormous and unique pressure to make distance learning work for your students, their families, and let’s not forget, yourselves. This class is for you.
Using a screen all day is hard on the body and confusing to the nervous system. By interacting differently with and through your screen, you can prime yourself for calm and connection. Knowing you can access this state increases resilience. In addition to the visual and attentional techniques that help everyone on zoom, we’ll do brief individual ergonomic assessments, and we’ll try out ideas for interactive physical play to boost engagement and energy. You’ll be able to share all or part of what we do with others you think could benefit, including your students.
This class is still in development. For now, it is being offered to teachers at no charge in exchange for thoughtful feedback. My goal is for it to be a resource for school systems.
