Divergent Thinking and Imaginative Education
April 1 @ 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM$10.00
This workshop will focus on developing divergent thinking capacities and approaches that foster these abilities in children and teachers. Dr. Annabella Cant will engage participants in a self-reflective journey first, then in a series of experiential learning that will demonstrate the existence of the sometimes unknown competencies that we hold and how to practice them in ECCE.
The workshop also introduces some of the “cognitive tools” of Imaginative Education; a theory and practice that generates joyful education. The atmosphere of Annabella’s workshops is full of hope, movement, joy, and playfulness.
