A Joyful Life
Creating an Engaging, Empowering and Playful Environment
The Early Years Conference, A Joyful Life: Creating an Engaging, Empowering and Playful Environment, is for early childhood through grade 2 educators. The conference keynote, Tom Hobson, will address how children, through their play, learn the bedrock habits and principles of living as joyful, empowered, and engaged members of a community. During the keynote and his breakout sessions, participants will learn the benefits of introducing these playful principles to their own students, the hallmarks of what makes a good “citizen” both in a classroom as well as a democracy, the traits and habits required for self-governance, and practical tips on how to implement these ideas in their own classrooms.
