Acknowledging students’ psychological state

Read more

A ‘traffic light’ method has been successfully used by several schools that wanted their teachers to gain a greater insight into the psychological state of students at different stages during the day. The hope was that by gaining this — usually hidden — information, teachers would be able to modify their practice in order to help students to enjoy a better climate for learning and thereby enter their Effective Learning Zone.

The system works by every teacher being issued with green, amber and red traffic light symbols for student use. When prompted, students hold up the traffic light that best sums up how ready they feel to learn. This gives them an immediate and confidential way to give feedback to the teacher about their readiness for learning.

A review of 23 studies involving almost 1,500 people found music helped to reduce blood pressure, heart rate and anxiety in heart disease patients.  Music can benefit our psychological wellbeing too. Research from the University of Missouri, published in The Journal Of Positive Psychology, found for the first time that upbeat music could have a very positive effect on our wellbeing.
