Using Drawing as a Pedagogical Tool for Inclusive Learning (online)


This offering involves two interactive online sessions designed to support creative approaches to inclusion. These sessions are participatory so participants should come prepared to do some low stakes drawing, and to have their Zoom cameras switched on to unleash the power of drawing for learning and fun in your classroom.


Whether you are you a habitual drawer, doodler, or, whether you would say “but I cannae draw the curtains!” this forum might be for you. We will discuss the benefits drawing can bring to everyone’s mental wellbeing, why it is an important thinking tool for learning, and how it extends and enhances children’s literacy skills. We will discuss current research evidence on why drawing is a powerful memory tool which can be used across every curricular area. You will participate in some practical drawing activities that can be easily applied into your classroom practice and that change your perceptions about what drawing is for. This CLPL activity will be especially useful for practitioners working in multilingual classrooms, and working with learners who struggle with traditional approaches to literacy.
