What Educators Are Saying
" I learned how to foster positive emotions, I am going to discuss some concepts and definitions with my students, specially the emotions and how to improve self-awareness, self-engagement, social awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision making beside the growth mindset. "
[I learned that] creating a classroom that fosters positive education in which building strong relations with every single student is a must, will be one of my priorities. Group work, not overloading the working memory, as well as chunking the work and focusing more on formatives rather than summative assessments will become part of my daily planning for the classroom.
"[The program] helped to understand the elements or basis for intrinsic motivation which is something many of my students struggle with. This way I can plan engaging lesson plans or activities wile also incorporating techniques and strategies from previous models."
"The most interested topic that encountered me is how to achieve the optimal arousal to maximize the motivation and keep the balance with the level of challenge. I am going to adjust my plans building on the new perspective towards motivation and challenge. Now I am more knowledgeable regarding some disorders and disabilities, so I can notice cases and take the action to help."
