Workshop: Professional Development for EC educators & elementary teachers
Wonderfully Connected Education
We, teachers, are privileged. We are some of the few adults who are still able to enjoy pure moments of wonder. We have not grown up by closing the wings of imagination for the sake of serious rationality. We dream, we laugh, and we work loving. What makes us privileged? Who minds our capacity for awe? Who are our guides? You guessed it: children. Their immediate vicinity makes us better humans. So, let us promise ourselves that we will do everything possible and impossible to keep our children’s power to wonder alive.
This workshop is dedicated to the prevention and resolution of possible gaps and disconnects within the education of young children. It reminds us how to slow down, enjoy our time with children and co-create knowledge with them. The atmosphere of the workshop is collaborative; Annabella considers that there are valuable lessons to be learned from each other and that sharing expertise and passion will provoke the drive to become more reflective and more creative practitioners.
Participants will get a glimpse of children’s genuine capacity for openness and wonder by feeling it themselves. Annabella will remind her participants how to be joyful, playful and open, and why these states of mind provoke deep and long-lasting learning in children.
