Developing Self-Regulation Skills Through PBL Pt 1: Physical skills (PracticingPBL #13)

Ginger and Brad

Brad joins Ginger in-house today to help us make connections with his work, helping children and adults develop better self-regulatory skills for better lives on down the road. In PBL, students are intentionally put into situations and challenges that help them learn to manage information, time, task, and group work ambiguity. This intentionally causes some levels of stress, but done in a safe environment where they can learn to develop lifelong skills. However, are these skills being taught intentionally or accidentally?

In this first of 4 podcasts, Brad helps us see a well-researched and designed path that will help students develop Physical self-regulation skills, which include identifying warning signs and learning how to calm the body down.
