Playful Pedagogies

Playful Pedagogies: Young children learning in international and multicultural contexts is a new John Catt publication in partnership with The Council of British International Schools (COBIS)

In the 21st century what the future holds for young learners is unclear, what is clear is that they need to be confident, capable and resilient. As wider communication about education is increasing there is a developing understanding that children in settings across the globe learn in the same ways and have the same needs.

This book considers international and multicultural learning environments from both theoretical and practical perspectives, written by specialists in early years education in the UK and in international contexts.

The theoretical perspectives are supported by eight case studies, from Uganda, Indonesia, Mexico, Qatar, Netherlands, Italy, the United Kingdom and Romania.

The book is edited by Dr Anna Cox and Dr Estelle Tarry. Dr Anna Cox is the Programme Leader for a Postgraduate Certificate in Early Years Education (QTS) at the University of Northampton, where she is a Senior Lecturer in the School of Education.

Dr Estelle Tarry is a Senior Lecturer in Education at the University of Northampton and a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.

Playful Pedagogies will be published on the 25th May, and is available to pre-order now for £13
