Traditional and Contemporary Games Workshop

 

Overview

This professional development workshop explores contemporary versions of traditional games in a hands-on way.

Traditionally Aboriginal children were taught skills in survival through play. By actively participating in the workshop, participants will learn traditional games that have been adapted. Participants will be able to share these games with the children in early childhood services or schools. This workshop includes group work, storytelling and hands on art experience.

Dr Sue Atkinson Lopez's PhD research Indigenous early childhood curriculum and self-determination and how games are a part of Aboriginal pedagogy will be examined.
