ReCognition is about rethinking professional learning experiences for educators that are inspirational, experiential, and create new meanings for our ways of being in our work and lives.
We believe in creating experiences where educators are inspired, touched in a meaningful way that challenges them to think deeper, to seek to provide authentic experiences and value children’s ideas in their work.

At ReCognition, we wish to promote the idea of slow thinking, beautiful places to meet in, time for conversation, relationships, belonging to a community of learners, and a sense of place that makes you feel rooted in the richness of what we have here in the lands, places and virtual spaces that we work.
As a group of people we can create learning communities and richer experiences with everyone’s ideas and then share with each other.
We are creating spaces like in person Thinking Studios, Thinking Studios Online, Atelier Experiences (in person), The Learn Atelier, opportunities for you to mess about and learn about different ideas with a playful environment that has focus on exploring and understanding the world through artistic research. We also offer, Pedagogical Collaboration, as a way to engage deeply over time and with specific ideas and questions from a group of educators.
If some of these ideas are what you are thinking about too, then join us. We are ready to engage and learn with you. Check out the Learning Spaces here.
