Portret Kieren Egan

 

An imaginative approach to teaching

This talk will discuss the roots of understanding in sets of ‘cognitive tools’ students commonly develop during the years of their schooling, which include, for young children, story structuring, binary oppositions, metaphor, emotional engagements, forming images from words, and a number of others.

In this talk I will focus on sets of tools accessible and usable for imaginatively engaging learning at all stages of schooling. Focusing on these ’tools of imaginative engagement,’ the talk will offer a somewhat new and distinctive approach to engaging young children’s imaginations in effective learning.
