Deep learning in early childhood takes place through nurturing interactions with caregivers and meaningful engagement with real-life problems. This presentation will examine the roots of deep learning by exploring early learning in indigenous forager communities in Cameroon and in the Americas. We will redefine “education” away from “schooling” and towards developing independence. We will explore play-based learning, adult roles in facilitating it, and individual versus collective orientations of education through a cross-cultural lens. Participants will gain understanding of diverse learning pathways in early childhood and strategies to support deep learning at home. This study group led by Sarah Strader will meet Wednesday April 21. Preregistration is required via the OLLI website or phone. A link to access the study group will be e-mailed to you approximately one week prior to the first session.
