This workshop will offer practical tools for teachers to better manage attention levels in the classroom. Awareness of how to gently guide the student’s energy is an important skill for any educator who aims to engage the whole child. This also includes attending carefully to the students’ non-verbal messages, and making the pupils active partners in the learning process.

 

Our goal is to promote skills for increasing and, when necessary, for redirecting children’s attention. We will also focus on the importance of being aware of the students’ energy levels, especially when they are restless, tired or unable to focus. Any unbalanced energy expression is an important message to the teacher and should be acknowledged and redirected in positive and constructive ways.

 

Scientific research has proven that learning does not only occur in the brain, but that the body is an essential part in the learning process. Therefore the key to balanced growth and learning consist in harmonious integration of body, mind and emotions.
