Keynote: THRIVERS - Rethinking education to graduate a resilient, prepared generation

These are unprecedented times but how do we help our students?

Dr. Borba explains why empathy and resilience are core whether learning is digital or in person and why we must rethink education so our children can thrive in an anxious, uncertain world. In this thought-provoking session, you’ll learn seven strengths that science says matter most in happiness, mental health, resilience and peak performance (even more than IQ and grades) and help kids thrive both now and later. And you’ll learn the three that matter most for our children now: empathy, self-control and optimism and how to weave them into your school culture and lessons. The good news is that thrivers are made, not born and educators play an enormous role in helping the Pandemic Generation. This is new material from Dr. Borba’s just-released book: Thrivers: The Surprising Reasons Why Some Kids Struggle and Others Shine.
