Staying well has been the theme of the prior 12 months. With the third UK national lockdown currently in place, the primary objective of which is to keep the population virus free. However, there is a huge gulf between staying well in perpetual stasis and living well where the body, mind and soul are enriched.
While educators do their utmost to maintain the multifaceted benefits of in-school learning in the virtual setting, there are limits to the experience of remote learning, and wellbeing, on average, will have suffered through attenuated society interactions. Therefore, teachers must work harder to maintain the wellbeing baseline.
Because of this, in this #UKEdChat session which took place on Thursday 4th February 2021 at 8pm(UK) we have drawn on the ideas of Abigail Mann from her book Live Well, Learn Well, and Abigail joined the UKEdChat After Hours Webinar at 9pm to discuss her ideas and answer your questions. We discussed a range of wellbeing ideas for both the individual and whole school level, how to get started, and how to reach out beyond the school gate.
