The global pandemic has left in its wake traumatized students, families, and educators and fear has been the dominant emotion. The essence of fearless schools is the building of psychologically safe environments where students and educators can learn together, make mistakes with transparency, learn from those mistakes, and engage in consistent innovation, experimentation, and learning. In this session, participants will 1) learn about the impact of psychological safety on learning and leadership, 2) identify the barriers to psychological safety and fearless schools, 3) evaluate alternative practices that lead to or detract from fearless schools, and 4) apply the learning to their individual contexts.
