In this webinar, Alice will guide participants through a step-by-step process for teaching and engaging children with play. However, this webinar is not a simple ‘how to’ guide. Instead of providing one-size-fits-all directions, Alice will focus on sharing her roadmap for creating inclusive play-based learning experiences. This map takes into account the perspectives and voices of the child, play partners, and adults. Using practical examples, case studies, and interactive activities, participants will learn to reflect on ways to use play-based learning that include and affirm all children’s ways of being in the world. The content covered in this 90 minute webinar includes:
