Thanks to Jennifer Lynch and the Students at Roslyn Park College for a marvelous experience. The following is some feedback from students “I will focus on my strengths in future instead of always thinking of my weaknesses”
My core belief was reinforced again: education empowers. It happened following a series of four workshops in Roslyn Park College – an education facility for persons who need specialist support.
Today was our second class in our ‘Mindset For Success’ series at Roslyn Park College, and the numbers have grown from day 1. We started by talking about strengths, abilities, passions and things to be thankful for. (its called ‘strengths based learning’ and is a great way to lift the moods of learners)
I wrote the other day about a privileged occasion and presenting at Learning Tech Labs meetup Wednesday evening. But there’s another privileged occasion that day. I’ve been fortunate enough to meet a visionary called Jennifer Lynch. Jennifer is a support teacher at National Learning Network, Roslyn Park College.
Our young people are missing a vital piece of education; and its called the mind. I believe that education on the mind can help our young people develop confidence, build mental strength and help them prevent mental health issues. Education on the mind would also be a major contributor to their wellbeing; but yet – mind education is something our system places little emphasis on.
