Room Location: Santa Clara Convention Center
Meeting Room Name: Grand Ballroom A
Theater Style: 65

Learning Level: Intermediate

Course Description

Environments need to be rich with opportunities for children to discover new learning. Spaces need to be defined, labeled, organized and inviting with quality materials that scaffold how children think about and use the world around them. Print rich environments, materials that challenge current knowledge and relaxed spaces allow children to explore and experiment with the knowledge they are safe and well cared for. In this hands-on session, participants will plan activities with clear objectives allowing all student learning styles to succeed, while appealing to student interests. This planning will involve brainstorming and hands-on activities to deepen their understanding of an effective learning environment that encourages conversation, increases vocabulary, and problem-solving skills.

Language: English

Course Description

Our future depends on our youngest citizens. On how many words they hear in their first months of life. On how often they are held. On the kinds of experiences they have. Yet even with business interests, scholars and politicians on both sides of the aisle lining up to support the early childhood education cause, millions of American children are still not getting the care they need to succeed--or even to keep up. And while it's the poorest children who are most vulnerable, middle class families are increasingly feeling the squeeze, as the cost of quality child care soars. So why, when the importance of quality early care and education is so widely accepted, do we continue to fail so many?

No Small Matter is a feature-length documentary film and national engagement campaign that brings public attention to this vital question by sharing powerful stories and stunning truths about the human capacity for early intelligence and the potential for quality early care and education to benefit America's social and economic future. This multifaceted project reveals how our country is raising its youngest citizens, why making the most of this time in their lives is so crucial, and most importantly, what we can do to change the perception of when learning begins. The first major theatrical documentary to tackle this topic, No Small Matter, is designed to kick-start the public conversation about early care and education. The ultimate goal: to produce an entertaining, accessible and inspiring film that redefines the audience's understanding of the issue and helps drive it to the top of the political agenda. Or, as one advocate put it, "not just to make a documentary about early childhood education, but to make the documentary about early childhood education."

Course Description

As we value creative thinking and problem solving skills more than ever in the 21st century, one of the crucial tasks for ECE educators, is to cultivate these skills in our daily work with young. But how? What kind of curriculum would work to fulfill this mission of fostering young students thinking skills? Through our own classroom teaching and educational research in this field, we come up with some solution to this problem. This presentation covers the following topic: 1) What are the inspiring, frontline theories relavent to children's "philosophical thinking"? 2) The application of theories and other globally recognized ECE approaches/curricula in our teaching practice at Peregrine School. Participants will get to practice of what they learn at the end of the workshop. Preschool and Kindergarten teachers at different levels are welcome.

Presenter's Biographies

Apr 12, 2019 @ 02:00 PM

Room Location: Santa Clara Convention Center
Meeting Room Name: Grand Ballroom F
Theater Style: 100

Learning Level: Appropriate for All

Language: English

Course Description

A quality play-based developmentally appropriate environment for young children begins with observation -- looking through the lens of a Peace Educator at the social/emotional, physical and cognitive needs and behaviors of each child and the group. The teacher must know how to observe and evaluate the environment both physical and psychological. Observation allows the teacher to scaffold learning and support children's feelings. With the knowledge gained through observation the teacher can develop their plan and their role in creating a community built on trust. When and where does the teacher intervene? How does the teacher involve families to create partnerships? In this workshop we will explore tools and strategies to engage children in the building of a collaborative community that is child-initiated and educationally sound and begins the growth of empathy, problem-solving skills, responsibility taking, collaborative decision making, curiosity and respect. We will explore supportive curriculum building with children that is based on developmentally and culturally appropriate activities and materials. the goal is honoring play as learning through identifying learning outcomes of activities and classroom centers and then sharing this information with families. through following the child's lead and building upon their play and interests, we can widen their conversations and introduce new ideas and concepts as well as developing critical thinking and the taking of personal responsibility.
