Innovations in Education: A Study Tour of the Early Childhood Centers of Pistoia, Italy
March 16 - March 20, 2015
(30 PDPs) The Innovations in Education study tour, launched in 2010, has quickly become known for the variety of learning opportunities it offers its participants, as well as its intimate view of Pistoia. Participants tour school environments; learn about the schools' history; talk with school staff and teachers about both practical and philosophic aspects of teaching and learning; and share with other participants their observations, beliefs and practice. Participants also have the opportunity to experience the history and culture of Pistoia, where the value of aesthetics and deeply held beliefs about the potential and rights of all children and families are so foundational.
