Workshop Summary:

In today's educational landscape, classrooms are recognized as more than just a place for learning. Educators recognize the importance of fostering a positive classroom environment where students feel secure, acknowledged, accepted, and motivated so that they can learn at optimal levels. This involves implementing routines and fostering opportunities for autonomy, risk-taking, questioning, and addressing challenges in the learning process where students can feel safe and the best learning conditions can take place.
