An Image of the Child and Childhood

ACT – Workshop – 25 May 2019

Venue: The Anglican School Googong

Presenter: Debbie Nicholas

Time: 9.00am – 12.30pm

This workshop explores some of the many possible Images of the Child and Childhood over time, in particular the choice the Educators in Reggio Emilia have made to view the child as the Protagonist of their own learning. Participants will have opportunities to engage in a dialogue related to the provocations and implications this project provides for Australian contexts. This half-day workshop will also provide an opportunity for each participant to create or reflect upon a personal statement of their own image of the child and childhood.
