Come and spend the morning learning and thinking with Dr Gary Stager as he unpacks the connection between the Maker Movement and Reggio Emilia.
Over a coffee and a croissant discover how the Reggio Emilia approach that is rooted in a half-century of work with Italian preschoolers and includes profound, subtle and complex lessons from intensely learner-centered classrooms, is applicable to all educational settings. Learn what “Reggio” teaches us about learning-by-making, making learning visible, aesthetics and project-based learning.
Suitable for teachers and parents of all age children.
