About this Course
Thank you for your interest in joining our online learning community. We look forward to working and learning together.
Children are individuals capable of leading their own learning. The journey of being a child is one of growth and collaboration alongside adults and society. How the adult world views the child and supports the child affects the rights of the child and their pathways to living and learning.
Our approximately 3 hour workshop, The Rights of the Child, introduces us to the rights of children in education and how these rights impact and support children, teachers, and the community. We are taking a deeper look into children's rights in education and how it supports the learning community. Together we will explore the pathways that support children's rights in education and what are the practices that support the educational rights of children in the classroom.
Essential Questions are the basis for the inquiry and our work together.
- What does it mean for children to have the right to be valued as a member of the community?
- What are the basic rights of children?
- How does agency (being able to make choices and decisions to influence events and to have an impact on one's world) support children's ability to learn, grow, and develop?
- What are the educational pathways that support children's rights in education?
Our Workshop, The Rights of the Child, is an opportunity to look deeper into supporting children's rights and empowering change in your school and community. You will gain insights into children rights in education and what it means for your practice. You will learn about the children's rights approach to education and how to build your capacity as an advocate in your professional practice. You will learn how placing children first in their learning, creates an environment for collaboration and growth within your school and community.
Thank you for your interest in this workshop.
We hope you will join us.
