Presenter(s): Andrea Magee

Find out what tips and tricks I use in my teaching to engage learners through joy. Research shows that joyful teaching has a profound impact on learning by setting up the brain to retain more, based on experiencing a strong positive emotion. My passion is embracing joy in education by implementing simple, effective strategies and exchanging ideas with other teachers to stay motivated and try new approaches. Taking inspiration from best practices in Finland and beyond, I will share what I have found useful in the primary classroom and hopefully leave you with a smile and something to try as a teacher!
