Professional Learning Workshop - Sensory Risk Taking
March 9, 2018, 7:00pm - March 9, 2018, 11:30pm
Join Daniel Burton (Co-founder of Educated by Nature) in this 2 hour workshop for educators and parents.
Sensory Risk Taking: More than just the five senses
Multi-Sensory experiences are vital for healthy brain development. Nature provides positive sensory opportunities and creates memorable learning experiences. It engages creativity and problem solving, promotes relaxation and the development of affection for nature. We will discuss the science behind developing multi-sensory integration and facilitate activities that challenge both children and adults. Experiential opportunities allow teachers to reflect on how to design lessons that incorporate sensory materials and experiences to enhance knowledge retention.
The following Professional Learning workshop has been designed to consider the whole child in their development through interaction with nature in a school or early learning environment. Trudi and Daniel combine child development theory with storytelling and experiential activities. Their aim is to help educators take the first steps required to commence, reinvigorate or enhance outdoor learning possibilities.
This workshop have been designed with reference to the Australian Institute for Teaching and School Leadership Teaching Standards. Standards 1.1, 1.2, 1.5, 3.1, 3.3, 3.4, 3.5, 3.6, 4.1, 4.2, 4.4, 6.1, 6.2, 6.4, 7.4
