Albert Einstein said, “The measure of intelligence is the ability to change.” Look around and you will see how the world is growing and changing at an increasingly rapid pace. The classroom community is becoming a global community. The children we are teaching now will need to know how to function in this ever-changing, ever-expanding global world. This will take an ability to think and problem-solve using both creative and critical thinking skills. At the same time, children will need to know how to function socially and emotionally with an awareness of needs and feelings of others. Let’s prepare children for the global community through play and research based activities that expand their thinking and open their hearts!
This webinar will addressed the following questions and offer concrete suggestions you can take right back to your classroom.
- How can we prepare children for the world in the future that is growing and changing so rapidly?
- What skills do they need to be successful?
- How can we nurture this naturally in children without pressuring them?
- How do we use research-based information to inform our teaching?
