Children everywhere learn best when they are happy, but for children who have fallen behind, how do you help them become confident, successful, life-long learners? Watch our webinar below to find the answers, as we dive into the Identity & Self-Belief element of the Luminos Method.

Our speakers discuss how children form beliefs about their own abilities, how this affects their development in school, and strategies to help students build their confidence.

“Part of our work is telling our children they can be successful, telling our teachers that every child can succeed, but actually, an equal part of our work is actually showing them that they can.”

“The emphasis on confidence building is important because in life, as in school, we come upon challenges, and so bumping up against challenges is a key place in which we need to emphasize the importance of persistence, the importance of identity, the importance that I belong.”

Alex Eble, Assistant Professor of Economics and Education, Teachers College, Columbia University

“Being an out-of-school child means that you likely have not been successful in the classroom, that you possibly do not think of yourself as an individual with potential, with something to give, with the ability to grow… I think we do a lot to empower the child and build that sense of self-belief and self-esteem.”

Emily Joof, Associate Director of Programs, Luminos Fund

“We are ensuring that learning is fun, that learning is relevant, and most importantly, that a child who opens the pages will see words, places, contexts, ideas that are familiar to themselves. And all those we know are stepping stones to ensure that a child builds their sense of identity and self-belief.”
