Aims and objectives:
A course with aims of highlighting the importance of children’s visual arts and the links between their representation of signs and symbolic concepts in their making of images and models. Participants will leave with increased knowledge, enabling richer observations through understanding better the meaning making activities of their own children and increase the frequency in which their children make their thinking visible.
- Discover what visual thinking is, what it looks like, what promotes it, and which learning situations support it
- Explore ways that children express their ideas and interests about the world
- Leave with ideas of how to support your own children to make their thinking visible
- See what this can look like when working with young children with rich examples and case studies from everyday practice.
