There is a golden rule when planning for children's learning…Follow up the thinking, not the activities. Tired of spending hours reviewing the plan trying to come up with 'follow-up' activities—asking yourself the inevitable question...' where to from here?' This webinar examines the planning cycle and how we utilise children's voices and agency to guide planning and learning. The more the learning is tuned into the child's interests, passions and needs, the more we can be sure of quality outcomes. We will also discuss using the EYLF Learning Outcomes as a 'guide' for the planning and not a template or checklist. One of the positives of planning like this is that a plan tends to write itself. There are limitless possibilities and opportunities beyond the learning listed in the frameworks when using the learning as a prompt for the follow-up and not the outcomes.
Completing Planning Outside The Boxes: If your following up activities, you’re doing it all wrong may contribute one hour of PD that aligns with the NESA (NSW) for Elective PD and addresses:
The Australian Professional Standards for Teachers: APST 3: Plan for and implement effective teaching and learning
