Workshop for Educators: Tinkering with Metal @ ECCDC
Nov 21 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Have you been hearing about ‘Tinkering’, ‘Tinker Labs’, ‘Tinker schools’ and so on, and wondered what all this Tinkering is about? Well if so, this three-part ‘Tinkering Series’ is for you. The series will provide opportunities for educators to explore what tinkering is (chances are that you are already doing it) and how educators can intentionally incorporate tinkering into your early learning and child care programs. There will be a focus on practical, hands-on experiences that educators can utilize with a variety of ages, and sessions will include a large portion of time investigating materials, and engaging with experiences that educators can use within their daily practice. Educators with come away with many process oriented inexpensive experiences, and a variety of materials that they can use with children in their programs. This fun interactive series will be co-facilitated by Ginette Wilson, Early Learning and Child Care Trainer and Patricia Couroux, Coaching and Mentoring Coordinator of the ECCDC and include opportunities for Educators to share ideas and experiences, and to reflect together in fun and engaging environments. Session 3 – Tinkering with Metal The third and final session in this series will look at the benefits of incorporating tinkering experiences within programming and will focus on utilizing tinkering with metal in their early learning and child care programs. Registration fee includes all materials and nutrition break. This series is hosted by ECCDC.
