Remote Learning: Student Health and Wellbeing
3 June 2020 | 13:00 BST
How are our young people managing without the peer to peer contact that humans crave? What practical ideas can we implement to support them whilst they are in their home setting and what structures and support do we need to think about as we think about their return to school?
Join us to hear from educators from the USA, Spain and the UK to hear how they are managing the mental and physical wellbeing of their students during and coming out of lockdown.
