Webinar Outline

In this presentation, Vicki Bennett focuses on two of the pivotal tools for growth mindset: visualisation and goal setting. She will show how to use these tools to enable young children to develop resilience, connection with community and confidence as learners and communicators. When students and educators have a growth mindset, they understand that intelligence can be developed. Visualisation and goal setting are pivotal skills in developing this intelligence. By using their imagination, children can develop strategies for learning. Visualisations include: The secret garden, Library of learning, Magic cave of friends, Rainforest healing, The beach and the healing white light, Flying in the clouds and Pink bubble. This presentation presents skills and tools for early childhood teachers to make visualisation and goal setting work as a valuable tool in the classroom.
