In order to live a higher quality life, maintaining optimal wellness is key. Wellness is more than being free from illness; it is a process of change and growth towards a mentally and physically healthy lifestyle. Everything we feel and do relates to our well-being and directly affects our actions and emotions. Applying wellness in your everyday life will allow you to achieve your full potential and live with passion and purpose.

 

In this webinar, Jo explores stress in the workplace, mindfulness activities and classroom activities.

 

This webinar will focus on:

  • The importance of taking care of your own mental health
  • Practical tools to help reduce stress
  • Why laughter is so important

 

Jo is a mother of two, a wife, sister, friend and business owner. Like most women, Jo wears many hats and has learnt to juggle everyday life alongside a business. As a former defence force wife, Jo understands the stress on family life when your partner is away for extended periods of time. For 6 years, Jo worked casual as a Teacher Aide in a Special School and believes that everyone is ‘special’ in their own little way, it is just that some are more noticeable than others!  Jo’s goal is to empower both men and women to take control of their mental health.

 

This is a Teacher Identified Professional Learning Course.

Teaching Students to be Critical Online Learners [Replay]
Content presented by Fiona Sharman, Teacher Librarian, Roseville College

 

[As we are in Daylight Saving Time in Australia, please check the time of the webinar for your time zone, e.g. NSW, ACT, VIC, TAS = 8.00 pm, QLD = 7.00 pm, SA = 7.30 pm, NT = 6.30 pm, WA = 5.00 pm]

 

In a ‘post-truth’ world, it is more important than ever to equip students with the critical thinking skills they need to make reasoned judgments about online news and social media content. During this session, Fiona will share how her school library responded to its concern about the preparedness of students to use reasoning to reach informed conclusions about what they read or view online. This includes a focus on ‘Fake News’, the increasing sophistication of ‘native advertising’, the viral nature of Social Media news stories, and the corruptibility of online image and video content.

 

Inspired by a 2016 Stanford History Education Group (SHEG) study, Roseville College developed its own three-year action research project that emulated SHEG’s study and adapted year 7 Information Literacy lessons to build student capacity to be critical online learners. Fiona will discuss this action research journey, its findings and suggest digital tools and lesson ideas that can be adopted to build your students’ skills as critical online learners.

 

After attending, participants will:

  • Develop their understanding of how to effectively measure students’ critical thinking skills in regards to online news, advertising and social media content
  • Gain access to Roseville College’s full 3 year action reports, graphs and methodology
  • Be provided with examples of how to create meaningful lessons that encourage critical thinking and develop student online information skills
  • Discover some emerging technologies that are specifically designed to analyse various social media content for reliability, authenticity and source provenance

Fiona Sharman is an English/History/Sociology teacher who now works as a qualified Teacher-Librarian. She is passionate about teaching critical thinking skills and enjoys supporting all students to develop their ability to engage in higher order thinking in their learning. When not at school, Fiona loves visiting family in the country, horse riding, sailing and generally escaping from the city!

Designing an Effective E-learning Course to Complement your Classroom Teaching
With Sarah Marwick, Director & Senior Consultant, Edutech KM Ltd

 

We know that students learn at their own pace. Many want more control over their learning. If you have ever considered creating your own online or e-learning course for your students or mapping out the content for someone to develop for you, this webinar will cover the key points to consider.

 

We will start by discussing what we mean by e-learning, and clear up any confusion between e-learning, online, distance, blended learning, or any of the other terms out there today! We will then look at why you might invest time in developing an e-learning course and explore the benefits both for students and for teachers.

 

Sarah will use examples of her own work to demonstrate concepts of instructional design – addressing issues such as the type of content best suited to this form of delivery, different levels of initial understanding and different styles of learning. She will show how to make the content more interactive and engaging to the students and outline the opportunity for students to assess or expand their understanding.

After attending you will:

  • Understand the reasons why you might develop an e-learning course
  • Be aware of the steps to follow to create an e-learning course
  • Realise some of the options available to add engagement and increase the effectiveness of the learning

Sarah is a former high school teacher and experienced instructional designer, with a passion for fun, effective and personalised learning. She is the Founder and Managing Director of Edutech KM Ltd, a learning solutions company in New Zealand, and the Founder of the charitable trust, Know Your Purpose. Through the Trust, Sarah delivers transformational programs for teenagers that inspire and empower them to recognise their unique strengths and passions and make a positive difference for themselves and others. Sarah has a keen interest in supporting positive mental health. She is currently developing e-learning resources for parents of self-harming children.
