Cognitive Flexibility: Teaching Children 'How to Think' Not 'What to Think' Webinar

Cognitive Flexibility: Teaching Children 'How to Think' Not 'What to Think' Webinar

This webinar, suitable for teachers, Principals, SNAs and support staff, will explore the benefits of cognitive flexibility in children. Cognitive flexibility is the ability to switch between different mental tasks, sets or strategies. Cognitive flexibility helps children to cope with changes in a calm, regulated way, and also helps children to learn more effectively. Participants will also explore the difference between cognitive rigidity and flexibility, and learn ways to nurture cognitive flexibility in children. Primary discussion topics include;

  • What is cognitive flexibility?
  • What does cognitive rigidity look like?
  • The benefits of cognitive flexibility, and
  • Activities that encourage and nurture cognitive flexibility.
