Thinking about Thinking with Teacher Tom
In this presentation, Teacher Tom uses a mixture of anecdotes, data, and provocative questions to take a look at the history and purpose of education and specifically at the process of thinking. He provides a framework for observing how children think under various circumstances, for discussing how we can create environments conducive to thinking, and for examining the role of teachers in a play-based (self-directed) curriculum.
Participants will be invited to think deeply about their own thinking, to consider how and why we must be ‘researchers’ in the classroom, and to learn right alongside the children.
Participants will receive instructions the day prior to the event, with a link to access the live zoom session.
