Wellbeing and iPad Series - creative ideas to promote a healthy mind
I love sharing creative ideas that support teachers in using iPad in their classrooms. More recently, I’ve been working with schools who mention they don’t have much time to learn new skills on iPad with their students. The struggle to find time that is not assessment based to teach independent skills on iPad, therefore, lack the integration of these digital literacy skills across the curriculum.
Student wellbeing is as important now as it’s ever been. Digital technology is sometimes seen detrimental to student's mental health, however I feel if used in creative ways it can enhance this learning experience. This is the reason I have created these four resources, that not only focus on student wellbeing, but also develop digital literacy skills for teachers to use in other curriculum areas. Here’s the a brief overview of the four lessons, click on each link to take you to the post and associated resources.
Lesson 1: Self Regulation and Awareness with Keynote
Objective: Students will be able to identify and label their emotions and use coping strategies to regulate them.
Lesson 2 : Social Awareness and Empathy with Clips
Objective: Students will be able to understand and respond to the emotions, thoughts, and needs of others.
Lesson 3: Resilience and Mental Health with Freeform
Objective: Students will be able to build resilience and identify the signs and symptoms of mental health problems such as anxiety and depression.
Lesson 4: Positive Mental Health with GarageBand (and Clips)
Objective: Students will be able to promote positive mental health through mindfulness, physical activity, and positive relationships.
I really do hope you enjoy these resources and as mentioned, please adapt for your own context and environment. I would love to hear how people have used these in their classroom below ⬇️
