The sense of wonder is one of the most natural and present abilities of all children. The power to explore the world using all senses should always be cherished and fully utilized in child care centers, as the BC Early Learning Framework suggests. Our workshop will engage with the sense of hearing and the power of sound as a learning tool. Sound is a pedagogical material that, even if untouchable, is always present. Children feel, see, and acknowledge sound in a multitude of ways. Through conversation and hands-on provocations, we hope to uncover questions and make discoveries through experiments with sound, music and movement applying multiple mediums both conventional and unusual. Each participant will walk away with pedagogical materials that can be used immediately.
Suitable for all early learning and child care professionals
Presenter: Dr. Annabella Cant and Violet Jessen
