||What does an educational project from Reggio Emilia, Italy half way around the world have to offer Language Teachers in South Australia? How do the principles from Reggio Emilia support educators in this context?
In this presentation Kate Mount, Director of Early Learning at St. Peter’s Girls’ School, shares her knowledge about the world-renowned schools and the way she has applied it in her work with children in Adelaide. Kate provokes listeners to apply the principles to their own settings.
This presentation is sure to make you reconsider the way you teach, the children you teach and many long held beliefs about teaching and learning. Participants will leave inspired.
