Dr. Katz was our first presenter during the 2012 Wonderplay Early Childhood Education Conference, and had the audience enthralled by her presentation. She discussed the four principles of structural engineering that line up with principles of a good foundation for educating children. She went on to outline the four questions that any curriculum should answer. An important take away from this lecture was that children always learn, not necessarily what you want them to learn.
Came across this video from the 2012 Wonderplay ECE conference, Lillian Katz has always typified what was right about ECE principle and practice. Somewhat a hero of mine. D
