Posted: 08 February 2019
Notice reference #: 1H9qvL


This is a free webinar by Seattle-based, Tom Drummond a highly-respected and well-followed thought leader in early education in the US.

Along the way, Tom has honed in on the importance of each teacher-child interaction on the floor and the practical tools that can help enhance those all-important experiences. Part of it is using learning stories, another part is about connecting to children.

This webinar is about the latter, connecting to children. He will cover the 4 modules from his website (which is linked in the 'about your host' section):

  1. Expressing warmth to children,
  2. Playing responsively
  3. Talking informatively and
  4. Attending to initiative and cooperation, and perseverance.

Part of Tom's gift to the early childhood education community is his website of thoughts and writing on a range of topics: Connecting to Children, Enterprise Talk, Cultivating Conversations, Leadership and Care, and Indicator Checklists.

"These make better educators, more highly evolved human beings, and happier people."

We feel privileged to have Tom present for us, he's an inspiration to us all. We hope you can join us.
