Experiential course with Jon Cree and Lily Horseman. Starting at 9.30 and finishing at 4.30
How does the outdoors support ‘the ecological and spiritual imagination of the mind’ of the child will be a key question explored on this workshop. We will also be looking at all the other developmental areas humans experience during play.
Outdoor play and ‘games’ will be shared to explore the many possibilities the natural world and outdoor elements offer for meaningful play – from the creative to the rough and tumble.
We will be exploring the ‘play framework’ and how we, as practitioners, spot cues from learners to interact with their play without destroying the ‘play’ and the ‘drive’ to play. We will also be examining when a ‘player’ enters a state of flow when the learning becomes integral to the human.
The day will look in detail at what practitioners can deduce from play. Are our observations and evaluations telling us what is really ‘going
on’ for the learner and how do we check they are truthful. This can then inform our inter- ventions and non-interventions as co-players.
How do we re-discover the world and mind of the child? – one of the many questions asked and explored on this workshop.
