This workshop will take participants on a journey of rediscovery. Annabella will present some historical and current advantages of using natural materials in ECCE. Also, she will introduce participants to the Somatic Understanding – a layer of meaning making that involves the child whole bodily. She will invite you into a world of magic and creativity that will provoke new ideas regarding the use of old materials. All senses will be opened to nature and the group will be researching the tiniest details of the earth’s beauty around us. Annabella will also share the core metaphor of her research: an Unswaddling Pedagogy. A way of being, within the pedagogical relationship that will never shut down the complexities of children’s competencies.
SUITABLE FOR ALL EARLY LEARNING AND CHILD CARE PROFESSIONALS
