We’ll give you an overview of the neuroscience behind what’s going on in a child’s brain and why play pedagogy works for grade 1-10, followed by fail safe methods to use and exploit in the classroom.

By the end of this workshop participants will be able to:
• Explain the benefits of play pedagogy beyond the early years classroom
• Use it in the classroom for primary learners and possibly be inspired to use it for teens and adults, too
