The World of Working Theories… A Way Into Creating a Thinker!
Presented by Lorraine Sands, Educational Leadership Project Working theories are ideas in motion.
How wonderful to be kaiako in early learning settings, creating contexts for children’s ideas to form, shift and grow in partnership with whānau. Working theories too, are the powerhouse of creative thought as they cause a juxtaposition of ideas and feelings, giving rise to possibility thinking that often bubbles up in unexpected ways.
This lecture considers how kaiako might strengthen and stretch children’s working theories, resisting the temptation to jump to a seemingly right answer, instead enabling ideas to ferment, stutter, and whorl around to elicit a passionate drive to learn more.
$45 per kaiako.
