Psychological safety is important throughout a student’s academic journey. It mentally prepares each student to actively participate in learning, allowing the learner to attach value to the new content.
Negative situations and experiences, can affect future learning conducted in a classroom. If learning environments are not safe, students may feel imprisoned rather than comfortable, safe and engaged.
If we choose to make a difference for our learners, we must establish an energized, consistent and safe climate, to maximize learning. Students shouldn’t be judged for making mistakes, they should have the opportunity to learn from such errors.
