5live

My Top 5 Edu-live for Monday 25th Feb  EARLY EDITION

The things that caught my biased eye since last week.

1. HOT OFF THE PRESS RESEARCH – PEW RESEARCH CENTRE FEB 20th

Most U.S. Teens See Anxiety and Depression as a Major Problem Among Their Peers

Pew released Feb 20 a new report that notes concern about mental health cuts across gender, racial and socio-economic lines, with roughly equal shares of teens across demographic groups saying it is a significant issue in their community.

2. MEANWHILE IN CANADA: Well-being as a lens for decision making                  

The Canadian Index of Well-being (CIW)

regularly reports on the quality of life of Canadians – nationally, provincially, and locally – and advocates for social change that reflects their values and places wellbeing at the heart of policy.

3. KIA ORA (That’s ‘Hello’ in New Zealand) Ten Trends by COREeducation notes WELL-BEING 

Wellbeing has emerged as a hot topic across many areas of their social, workplace, and government ecosystems in recent years. While there is currently no agreed international definition for wellbeing, those who research the area agree that wellbeing is more than the absence of disease, it is a construct with many parts. In order to flourish people need to experience high levels of wellbeing.

4. FORBES: Recently noted the following well-being trends for the workplace:

  • Wellbeing is a strategy AND a responsibility.
  • Personalization and relevancy are key, gone are the days of “burpees and broccoli” only programs.
  • Realizing and acting on the fact that HR does not own wellbeing and employee experience alone – everyone does.
