The Third Place invites you to a very special evening focused on the importance of creativity in our schools, communities and everyday lives.
Dr. Gandini will be sharing her wisdom, ideas and images about creativity from her work with schools across the world, serving infants - elementary school. She is the Reggio Children's Liaison for the dissemination of the Reggio Emilia Approach and co-author of several books for parents and educators including, The Hundred Languages of Children; Beautiful Stuff: Learning with Found Materials; and In the Spirit of the Studio, and author of many children’s books written in Italian.
In her presentation she will cover how:
* Creativity should not be considered a separate mental faculty but a characteristic of our way of thinking, knowing and making choices.
*Creativity seems to express itself through cognitive, affective, and imaginative processes.
* A child's creative process is fostered by his/her environment and by peers and adults who observe and listen to their ideas.
* Intellectual and expressive activities are both rich in possibilities, and when used create more constructive and meaningful learning exchanges with children.
