Educators are dealing with more and more instances of student anxiety and mental health issues, and the impacts these can cause in a classroom can be quite profound. Can an average teacher, without a counseling degree or special training, make a difference in these students’ lives? The answer is, of course, yes. Teachers can make all the difference in the world!
This edWebinar examines how the use of digital portfolios can help students who have mental health issues. This recorded edWebinar will be of particular benefit to kindergarten through high school teachers, librarians, and school and district leaders.
