This workshop will explore how we can embrace, support and develop the imagination and creativity of young children in the early years. Drawing on principles from moving image education it will consider how we can use the experiences and knowledge young children bring from watching television and videos so that we can build on what children already know and do in order to challenge and develop learning.  Through the ‘3Cs’ of media literacy: the cultural, the critical and the creative – this workshop will give participants the opportunity to reflect on the growing recognition that our conception of literacy needs to expand beyond the traditional printed and spoken word.
