      Learning on the Loose

      Learning on the Loose Experience, discover and understand the theory of Constructivism and using loose parts in the classroom.  This training will highlight the various ways that teachers can use loose parts inside and outside in order to meet the developmental guidelines set by NC Foundations, ITERS and ECERS while staying within the limits of sanitation and licensing rules.  Teachers will understand ways to entice and provoke children’s creativity, imaginations and critical thinking skills  using loose parts.  Last, we will tell you what they are, where to find them, and how to store them. Objectives: 1. Understand the theory of Loose Parts and Constructivism and what they look like in the classroom. 2. Learn how to use loose parts as provocation for creativity, critical thinking, problem-solving, decision-making and imagination building tools. 3. Use your own creative process and a hands-on approach to discover what loose parts are and how they can be used to meet the developmental guidelines set by NC Foundations. 4. Find out where and how to obtain loose parts, how to store them, when to use them and what sanitation and licensing have to say about loose parts. 5. Understand how loose parts fit into the ITERS and ECERS materials checklist.
