Putting the focus back on children and making them leaders in their own learning shifts the adult’s role away from being a teacher and more to a facilitator. It’s a subtle change but an immensely powerful one. No longer is the adult the Knower. No longer are children ’empty’. Instead, we enter their ‘ether’ engaging in play, creating alongside them, conversing and collaborating as an equal. We begin to hear the ‘languages’ of children and not our own.
