A Sense of Place: Mindful practice outdoors by
Call Number: 371.384 DAV
Publication Date: 2019
Being outside and connecting with nature is key to young children's learning and wellbeing, especially in a busy, fast-changing and digitalised world. Outdoors, children can more easily connect to their bodies, and learn about themselves and others and how to be in the world. They use their senses to explore, understand and become mindful of the earth and the people around them. But how can Early Years practitioners best support young children as they engage with nature, while also passing on the values about the future of the planet? Annie Davy presents tried-and-tested strategies that support the wellbeing and learning journey of children through mindfulness, with a focus on learning outoors and connecting with the world.

Publication Date: 2017-03-24

Taking to heart the idea that deconstruction is a prelude to reconstruction, this critique leads to discussions about how education can be remade, and respond to the educational imperatives of our time, particularly as they relate to ecological crises and human-nature relationships. It will be of great interest to students and researchers of sociology, education, philosophy and environmental issues."-

Using filmic case studies, including Code Inconnu, Lord of the Flies, and Apocalypse Now, and focusing on key concerns developed in the works of the philosophers Deleuze, Olsson, and Wittgenstein, Abrahamsson starts within the notion of fixed spatiality, in which human thought and action are anchored in the given of identity.
