The Global Thinking Playground

Enhancing Agency Across Borders

The Thinking Playground in Old Fadama

We are practicingĀ our pedagogical approach beyond North America!

Under the supervision of our educational director, we haveĀ started a Thinking Playground project in Ghana and Ivory Coast. From 2016 to 2018, Arthur worked with a group of children aged nine to sixteen and their teacher in Ghana, with the goal being to nurture a sensitivity to critical, creative and cooperative thinking and, thereby, to enhance agency. While cultivating their philosophical sensibilities relevant to their cultural context, Arthur has kept a diary including its celebratory and challenging times.

At the moment, Arthur is also setting up a project in Ivory Coast!

It is our hope that at some point in the future, we may be able to send a team of THINKING PLAYGROUND counsellors to Ghana and Ivory Coast.
