Using Lumio in Trauma-Informed Education PracticeBen Pisani

Presented by Benjamin Pisani, Curriculum Coordinator from Melbourne, Australia

Working in a trauma-informed environment with students who struggle to engage in learning provides quite a few challenges, some of which include getting students to connect to the learning and to share their voice. Using Lumio, we have been able to connect students to their learning, provide agency where they can share their voice and ideas, connect to the learning, and reinforce the ideas being presented. Lumio helps these students to create pathways for a bright and positive future.
