Communication Friendly Spaces- Elizabeth Jarman
Elizabeth leads an international team of experts who offer bespoke consultancy for schools, delivering whole team training, environment audits and strategic support for leaders. She has a particular interest in engaging families in children’s learning. Elizabeth writes for the education sector press and has published several award winning books on The Communication Friendly Spaces™ Approach.
We specialise in developing really effective learning environments for children. We use The Communication Friendly Spaces™ Approach as a framework for review, to help you to re-think the way you use your environment more effectively, to support children’s learning.
Elizabeth Jarman conceptualised this approach in 2006. She says, "we need to challenge historical stereotypes around the way that environments have traditionally been set up for children, based on what we know today about brain development, language acquisition, child development and attachment theory. It's time for a re-think!"
The conference will provide a challenging overview of The Communication Friendly Spaces™ Approach, to help to inspire a review and further development of learning environments to ensure they are really supporting children’s speaking and listening skills, physical development and emotional well-being. Input will illustrate the theory with lots of relevant imagery, case studies, videos and examples of impact, to demonstrate how the principles underpinning the approach have been used in practice. Using a case study approach, key strands of research will be highlighted, for example:
