It’s 2019, and technology continues to reshape teaching trends in and out of the classroom.

This year, the trends are about building the “Intelligent Digital Mesh” which encompasses:

  • Digital – The digital world brings the virtual and real worlds together in a new digital reality; and,

Teaching Mantras

Learners Edge recently hosted our first blended learning course on Mindfulness. It was a fantastic experience for us as a Learners Edge team - we were inspired and enlightened by the abundance of wonderful conversation from our teacher students from around the country. 

Our course instructor, Lance Raabe shared with us the value of creating a Teaching Mantra.  A teaching mantra is a simple way for teachers to bring mindfulness to teaching. By committing to a short, consistent phrase, and sharing it with your students, this mindful act can help on days when the classroom feels a bit off kilter. Lance's teaching mantra is: "Best Day of My Life...Until Tomorrow!"

Many of our course participants shared their Teaching Mantras and we wanted to pass along a little of their brilliance. Read on, perhaps one of these mantras will resonate with you!
