"It's the little conversations that build the relationships and make an impact on each student." - Robert John Meehan
We can transform our physical and virtual classrooms into active learning communities, where students support each other. The best communities allow students to contribute, collaborate, create, and get to know each other. Students need to build relationships with their peers in order to prevent issues with bullying and ensure the support of one another in succeeding in learning goals. We can encourage this by implementing team building activities, icebreakers, getting-to-know you activities, and collaborative tasks. Shelly is excited to share her fun, inspiring activities and tools with us in our webinar today!
