Outdoor Learning Webinar 1 Video & Resources

Webinar Recording

First streamed live and recorded on Tuesday September 22, 2020, the first webinar in our series of five introduces the benefits of the outdoor environment for learning and the positive effects on children’s holistic development.
 
The first webinar in the series introduced the benefits of the outdoor environment for learning and the positive effects on children’s holistic development. The Early Years Learning Framework and Dimensions of Learning in the Australian Curriculum recognise that children’s learning is integrated and should focus on connections to the natural world where there is opportunity for activity exploration and discovery. Being outside daily stimulates children’s thinking and creativity in ways not possible inside a classroom. How educators can set expectations around learning and assess risk will be discussed along with the notion of children leading their learning through projects, play and inquiries.
