Join us online for our 'In Conversation with...' and gain practical insights and new activities to help your children become more resilient and responsible citizens of the future.
CDEC has developed its online 'In Conversation With...' series to bring a variety of speakers straight to you. Each guest begins with an introduction which leads into practical activities you can use to help improve your teaching or to develop your knowledge.
So far we have the following inspiring speakers and are continuing to add to this:
- Ian Long, the creator of the Blob Tree, will model how to use the Blob resources and will end the session by answering your questions. Wednesday 21 October 4.00-5.00pm (Tickets are free for members and CARE participants; £11.37 for anyone else).
Do you know what the Blobs are? The Blobs are simple. They deal with deep issues using the primary languages we learn from infancy – feelings and body language and are used with children as young as 4, all the way through to the elderly. Book your place here
- Jane Yates (SAPERE P4C trainer, Global Educator of the Year 2017, CDEC Associate Trainer) will be leading us on a discovery of her Philosopher's Backpack and showing you how to make best use of CDEC's 'Philosophy for Global Learning: Tried and tested techniques'.
