Promoting Imagination and Creativity in a Media-Saturated World

Online Thursday, June 20, 2024 from 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

We’ve seen an increase in research on the damage media is doing to the well-being of our children. 

However, we live in a world that has become more integrated with technology.

 How do we find balance to promote creativity, imagination and engagement in this screen-dependent world? 

This webinar will examine current research on the impact of screen time on young children's emotional and social development.

 It will also provide educators with resources to enhance young children’s imaginative capacities via the education frameworks of Imaginative Education.

Living Inquiries:

  • Well-being and belonging:Participants will be provided a developmental and curriculum development framework 
  • that enhances personal growth for the child and engagement with the world in an imaginative way.
  • Engagement with others, materials, and the world:Participants will be provided with vocabulary
  •  and a chance to look at curriculum through the lens of the pedagogical framework of Imaginative Education.
  • Communication and literacies:
  • Participants will understand the strength of the consumerist worldview currently inundating children's play culture.
  • Identities, social responsibility, and diversity:
  • Participants will recognize the role of media in the shaping of children's identity particularly a look at the cultivation of stereotypes.

Pathways:

  • Joy in relationships with people, place, materials and ideas.
  • Time for engagement.
  • Multiple modes of communication.
