In our second Summer Short from TeachMeet London Boat, a group of teachers and educators talk about mental health and mindfulness. They cover areas such as student anxiety around exams, ADHD, how and why to use mindfulness techniques and practical, classroom approaches to making a positive impact on the mental welbeing of their classes.

Over 100 educators gathered at Westminster Pier to board the boat and cruise the River Thames while discussing educational issues. The format was different to many TeachMeets – delegates submitted the questions they wanted to discuss as they boarded the boat and then small groups were formed, facilitated but not dominated by a volunteer.

Everyone agreed it was a brilliant experience and we all look forward to many more TeachMeets which follow this pattern.
