Event Description

Join Claire Warden and Paul Roberts for this full day workshop that brings children in the center of learning.

For more information and registration information please visit:www.childlearnnature.com

Consultation with children is important because:

• It creates a closer match between the child and the curriculum it is experiencing.

• It builds self esteem and positive attitudes when the learner is involved in the decision making.

• It increases intrinsic motivation, that stays with a child throughout life.

•Children have a right to be treated with respect as individuals.

This course will:

Explore the practical methodology for recording children’s ideas and voices (including Talking tubs, Talking and Thinking Tree, 3D Mind-mapping and Floorbooks).

Look at how to take children’s ideas forward and use them in planning.

Discuss the adult’s role in the consultation process
