Classroom 2.0 LIVE! - Saturday Shows

Join us on Saturday, September 6th, when our special guest will be Joan Young. Joan has recently published her book: Encouragement in the Classroom and she will be sharing some of her best tips and strategies for creating and nurturing an encouraging classroom environment. We all know the factors that can threaten a positive classroom environment: stress from testing, lack of motivation, and problems that students bring from home, for a start. What if we could implement some simple practices to buffer against these factors' negative effects? The good news is that we can. Some of the suggestions Joan will share include how fostering humor, mindfulness, resilience, curiosity, and gratitude in the classroom empowers students to learn from their mistakes, celebrate successes, and actively engage in learning. Follow Joan on Twitter. Her book offers practical, classroom-tested strategies, routines, and rituals that teachers can use immediately to defuse the negative effects of stress and create a stimulating and supportive classroom culture. More information and session details are at If you're new to the Classroom 2.0 LIVE! show you might want to spend a few minutes viewing the screencast on the homepage to learn how we use Blackboard Collaborate, and navigate the site.
