Teacher Tom - Play-based Learning - Supporting Democratic Education

Inspired EC are delighted to bring Tom 'Teacher Tom" Hobson back to Australia.

Light refreshments provided

Recommend event:


Tom speaks on the topic of bringing the habits and principles of democracy into early years classrooms. He will begin by discussing the purpose of education in a democracy and how and why we have managed to veer so far from the original intent of education in America. He will then explain how a play-based curriculum works and, in fact, demonstrate how it is an ideal model of democracy in action. Participants will learn the benefits of introducing democratic principles into their classroom, the hallmarks of what makes a good citizen in a democracy, the traits and habits required for self-governance, and some practical tips on how to implement these ideas in their own classrooms.
