In today's episode of Lean Into You, we talk with Dr. Claire Warden, an internationally-renowned advocate for nature-based practices in early childhood education. In our chat, we will talk about promoting a nature pedagogy and what that means for ourselves and our kids. We will cover:
1) What it means to have a nature pedagogy
2) How we can use the four elements to promote a equitable nature-learning environment
3) How to bypass the obstacles that come with documenting nature-based learning
4) Inside, outside, and beyond as three literal and metaphoric spaces we occupy
5) How promoting nature-based learning can slow us down as educators
