Play Matters – why Play Matters more than ever now. An introduction to play-based enquiry learning in the early years of school.
If you’re wondering what you can do to engage your children and address reluctance and anxiety post lockdown look no further than this PD. See how Investigative learning and a play-based pedagogy are the answer to meeting children’s learning, development and well-being needs while still addressing necessary outcomes.
This half-day webinar will introduce why children need to learn this way and how you can practically introduce it in your early years classroom.
Our guest presenter Dr Dee O’Connor* will examine the case for incorporating child-initiated learning into your school. Our Walker Learning consultants will then introduce you to a snapshot of the core elements of Walker Learning, including how to personalise teaching and learning as well as effectively and easily link literacy and numeracy in Investigations to your explicit literacy and numeracy lessons. A live panel will provide an opportunity for questions and discuss implementation strategies for your team or school.
Join us for this half-day webinar to see why more than ever Play Matters!
* Professor O’Connor’s research relates to play, learning environments, creativity, and child development through education. Dee is a published author and regularly speaks at national and international conferences.
