The concepts of “emergent curriculum” and “emergent learning” can be challenging when it comes to putting them into practice. Educators can become unsure of their roles and may feel that they are being asked to just stand back and wait for things to happen. Emergent curriculum calls for so much more than passivity. But what?
As educators who practice with an emergent curriculum, we find ourselves holding many different roles and we must find the passion and the power within us to manage this complex and yet rewarding approach.
On November 30th, our evening session will explore the role of the educator in emergent learning and share stories of Opal School and Frog Hollow Children Centres to further illustrate this subject.
Also, participants will have the opportunity to visit our Reggio-inspired preschools.
