Fair Play: Supporting Children to Capture their own Progression and Learning

Monday 6 December 2021  |  4.30 - 6pm  |  Zoom

A friendly and fun session that involves working together to deepen our understanding of how to capture young people’s perceptions of their own learning. By treating young people as team members and thinking creatively about how we ask questions, we can support learning in a way that is effective and inclusive.

 The session will include:

  • Setting goals together: How to make goals include young people’s voices, using recordings and cameras to capture progress.
  • Using inclusive reflection and young people’s input to guide and inform our planning that will support their individual musical journeys and inform our teaching practice.
  • Sharing knowledge together as professionals: Challenging preconceptions about learning, examining what progress we and the young people want to make and considering where this meets and where it may diverge.

The training is open to anyone working or interested in working musically with children and young people. This could include, but is not limited to, Music Teachers/Tutors, Community Musicians, Music Leaders, School Teachers, Students, Project Managers, Music Hub Staff.
