What a full day we had discussing all things outdoor play and learning! Thank you to everyone who joined me today from the Okanagan-Skaha school district. In our full day session we discussed where and how learning happens in our schools. We explored practical applications of loose parts play outdoors, and how teachers can shift their practice to capture the curricular learning that emerges in outdoor play without paper and pencil tasks. We took a deep dive into risky play and how we might support the social-emotional and physical health benefits it provides for our learners. I look forward to hearing how this is enacted in your own practice!
I am unable to post the slides from our session because the file is simply too large. I will link blog posts you might find helpful from our conversation today below:
