Embracing Change: Turning Uncertainty into Adventure
Thursday 4 March 2021 – Virtually Hosted via Click Meetings – 09:00 – 13:00
Human beings tend to dislike the idea of uncertainty. It is full of the unknown and the unpredictable, which easily makes us anxious. Ironically, excitement contains all the same qualities, but just the term ‘excitement’ creates a very different expectation.
In this event with Dr. Suzanne Zeedyk, we will look at the differences between uncertainty and excitement, thinking especially about how they shape children’s behaviour. Some children (and adults too) can cope with uncertainty better than others. What explains that difference, and how can that knowledge be applied in the classroom? Of course, change always starts with the adults. It promises to be a morning of insight and ideas!
