How does play drive learning without trying to learn?
What can children at play teach us about
conditions and qualities that support learning?
A New Online Feldenkrais series with Matty Wilkinson
Young children are the world’s most potent learners. This amazing ability is powered not by hard work and force of will, but through play. Play provides the developing brain with rich experiences, which are the raw materials it needs to grow and change.
Play has specific qualities and features which create fundamental conditions that support learning.
Parents and professionals can learn to recognize and harness the neurological wisdom of play to support the children we care for and teach, including those with neurological injuries and other developmental challenges.
And, play is not just for children. Adults can apply the elements of this process to support our own learning and continued development.
In the course, developmental movement will be the point of entry in this process, but you can apply these principles to other domains of functioning, including cognition, language, and social and emotional development.
The Feldenkrais Method® and the Anat Baniel Method for Children® are innovative, developmentally-based approaches to learning that utilize movement + attention to enhance awareness, clarify and support fundamental movement patterns, increase our range of movement and thought, and refine our ability to learn.
Who is this for? Anyone interested in learning and developmental movement. Parents, educators, providers serving babies & young children, and those with a desire to learn and play are welcome.
