Welcome to the third episode of our What Matters in Edtech series, supported by Bett. This series is all about the things that matter in education, and how and when tech might help.
This week’s episode is all about Wellbeing. Released this year, the Teacher Wellbeing Index 2019 highlighted stress and rising mental health issues across the sector. According to the index, 78% of all education professionals have experienced either behavioural, psychological or physical symptoms due to their work, with 60% not feeling confident that they could talk about mental health issues with their colleagues.
In this episode, you will hear from a range of school leaders and teachers, wellbeing experts and coaches about what can and is being done to support an everyday approach to self, student and staff care.
You can follow the conversation using #edtechpodcast and #Bett2020
