Project Work: Too many choices

PRESENTER: DAVID GILKES

Do you sometimes feel like you have a whole lot of ideas and possibilities for projects but are unsure which one to follow? How do you decide what's worth pursuing? How can you 'narrow the field' and ensure that you, and the children, don't get lost? What ideas are going to be engaging, motivating and allow for deeper inquiry and research? What's the role of the adult in all of this? These are just some of the questions explored in this webinar, which promotes thinking about the educator's role as a researcher alongside the children.
