Tuesday, March 18, 2014
4:30 PM - 6:30 PM
Presenter: John NimmoIn a world where children and adults have less and less contact with the natural world, how and where do we begin to bridge the gap? What is nature in urban settings? What does nature offer the educational experience? Drawing on experiences in very different ecologies and cultures, John will lead us on an exploration of how play, work, identity, and risk-taking must all be considerations in thinking about children, adults and nature. RSVP for this event!
Presenters: Lisa Fiore, Nancy Carlsson-Paige, David Ramsey, and Fretta ReitzesSocietal pressures on children and teachers threaten some fundamental experiences and environments that contribute to healthy development. Preserving and celebrating the wonder of childhood has been the motivation behind efforts to elicit children’s innate curiosities, nurture self-discovery and increase self-esteem, and to promote authentic joy in learning. This session presents examples in Boston, New York, and other play communities, highlighting the role of teachers in promoting such communities inside and outside of the classroom. RSVP for this event!
