Webinar – Space, Objects & Materials: Facilitating Children’s Natural Curiosity
Setting up meaningful invitations, that are both aesthetically pleasing and rich in sensorial potential, have the capacity to facilitate natural curiosity, critical thinking and learning processes. Through daily proposals of engaging and relevant materials, children can expand on their learning capacities as well as deepen their understanding of the world around them. Driven by exploration and inquiry, these sessions will guide the participants as to how to view the materials at hand, what are the different ways of inviting children through the use of materials, and how to extend on the given responses and possibilities.
