Concepts, creativity and collective thinking of infants, toddlers and pre-schoolers : STEM findings from the PlayLab
March 17, 2022 - March 17, 2022
Beginning with an overview of what we have learned over three years by Laureate Professor Marilyn Fleer and Dr Prabhat Rai you will experience snapshots of practices from the PlayLab researchers through video and photographic documentation.
New findings about how infants and young children think with concepts will be shared, how to authentically create STEM problems in play will be illustrated, and how conceptual thinking changes from infancy to school will be discussed. New digital innovations and possibilities for imagining in STEM for playgroups, preschools, family homes and schools will be demonstrated.
This event is currently scheduled to be a hybrid event, with a limited number of attendees joining us at Monash University, Clayton Campus. If we are unable to host the event in person due to COVID -19 restrictions, the event will take place exclusively online. We will provide attendees with further updates in due course.
