Why focus on children's agency?

Agency
You'll leave this workshop inspired to focus on promoting children's agency, with strategies on how to fill their power and freedom cups. We explore approaches and practices to provide for children's recognition, competence and control; and for Freedom cup filling by providing for choice, autonomy and agency.

You will engage in practical experiences to:

  • understand why 'agency' is important for children and their learning
  • use theoretical and hands-on approaches to reflect on and improve your child-focused pedagogy
  • know drawbacks to using control, praise and rewards systems
  • shift your practice to using real choices and affirming effort and qualities
