Noticing Differently: Critically Reorienting to Place in Early Childhood Education

Educators will “notice differently” matters of equity and inclusion in place-conscious learning by repositioning themselves within multifaceted landscapes. Critically reflective exercises inspired by the 'spiral of attunement', will reorient participants to place physically, intellectually, socially, and historically to support children’s ecological belonging and environmental response(ability).
