Creativity and Expression using Digital Media and Technology with young children (3 to 6 years)

Date: 26 March

Time: 1.15 – 3.15pm (with comfort break)

Venue: online – via Zoom

Digital Media and Technology can be used to enrich experiences of creative and expressive learning across subjects and areas. You will find out about the work of Pre-Schools in Sweden and the UK who have worked together developing projects and designing learning environments that blend traditional materials found in the classroom together with the use of technology in fascinating but accessible ways. This session also provides opportunity for personal experimentation with digital languages that you can take back to develop further in your practice with young children. This online seminar will consider the approaches to the digital world, that values creativity and the arts creativity and give you opportunities to reflect on your own practice. The session will be led by Louise Lowings.

No experience is needed; it will be engaging, practical and welcoming of all working with children in a variety of capacities from the ages of 3 to 6 years. 20 places available on a first-come-first-served basis for £10
