Enabling Environments – The Third Teacher
This workshop focuses on the school environment. In Reggio Emilia the environment is referred to as the third teacher indicating the value and importance they attribute to the environment.
There are many factors that influence how we feel in a particular environment.
How we feel in turn has an effect on attainment, engagement, self esteem, motivation and general well being. These have a direct effect on our ability to be creative and fulfil our potential for creative thinking.
There are also many aspects of the environment that have a direct impact on creativity and this workshop focuses on what changes can be made to the school environment to encourage creativity.
The session includes an in depth environment audit.
