In this video we discuss a topic that can be controversial- positive reinforcement!
While some people may think of lollies and other tangible rewards, positive reinforcement is so much more than simply handing out sweet treats.
And the use of positive reinforcement with students at school has been shown through numerous studies to be such an effective strategy in improving behaviour and learning, you need to give it a try.
Positive reinforcement is not only good for kids it is good for teacher wellbeing because it is an effective strategy while using ineffective punitive strategies increases levels of teacher stress and burnout.
Being positive and looking for what is going well is good for your wellbeing. Go teachers!!
