Apr 11, 2019 @ 08:30 AM

Room Location: Santa Clara Convention Center
Meeting Room Name: Room 205
Theater Style: 40

Learning Level: Appropriate for All

Language: English

Course Description

The children in our care thrive when there is a partnership between their families and teachers. Stereotypes and bias on both sides can be obstacles in building respectful relationships. In contrast to explicit biases, it is sometimes difficult to recognize the implicit ones. This presentation offers opportunities to examine societal stereotypes, implicit bias, and incidents of microaggressions through interactive and reflective examples. These incidents that are often delivered unconsciously and unintentionally may result in a rift in the teacher-family partnership. Alternative ways to address microaggressions and practical strategies for more effective and productive communication are explored. Suggested audience: Beginning-Advanced

Apr 12, 2019 @ 02:00 PM

Room Location: Santa Clara Convention Center
Meeting Room Name: Grand Ballroom E
Theater Style: 85

Learning Level: Introductory

Language: English

Course Description

An artist flourishes in a well-provisioned studio that is visually appealing and inviting for experimenting with authentic, dynamic materials, and so do children. Children need well thought out art spaces where they can explore, experiment, discover, process, and create with an array of intriguing open-ended materials (i.e., loose parts). A different approach of designing art spaces will be presented to new and seasoned educators that includes the use of sustainable rather than consumable materials. The presentation will cover:

- the value of visual arts spaces.

- how to design visually appealing and inviting indoor and outdoor spaces where creative two-dimensional and three-dimensional art can happen.

- general guidelines for setting up art spaces.

- ideas for collecting and discovering types of art materials that are sustainable and authentic.

- ideas for organizing and displaying materials.

- how to fill art areas with natural and artistic materials that appeal to your senses.

- approaches to nurturing the innate creativity of children.

- how exploring loose parts stimulates the imagination and inspires storytelling and interactions between children.

- how to expand awareness of multicultural art.

- how to engage families in collecting and discovering found materials.

Captivating before and after photos of both indoor and outdoor art spaces will be shown along with slides of fascinating art explorations with sustainable materials. Participants will have an opportunity to view a variety of different loose parts and learn how they support creativity.

Workshop Title: Using Math to Introduce Technology in Developmentally Appropriate Ways in Preschool

Presenter's Biographies

Apr 11, 2019 @ 03:45 PM

Room Location: Hyatt Regency Santa Clara
Meeting Room Name: Magnolia
Theater Style: 100

Learning Level: Intermediate

Language: English

Course Description

Math is more than just rote counting or 1-to-1 correspondence, and it is necessary to find ways to introduce math to children in meaningful ways. The same goes for technology, and despite the recent stances by both NAEYC and the American Association of Pediatrics supporting the use of quality screen time, most teachers balk at the idea of using iPads in the classroom. Old Firehouse Schools worked over the last few years to research and develop a comprehensive math and technology curriculum with children ages 3-5 that still felt play-based, child-centered, and developmentally appropriate. We will share our experiences, both positive and negative, about using technology to help promote math, and what we have discovered that is successful for both teachers and children. It is imperative that all technology with young children adhere to the idea of Context, Connection, and Content -- that adults are very engaged in what the children are doing with the games and apps, and are involved as the children are using it. Join us to hear about specific ways to introduce math apps and games in a context that will matter to your children, as well as guidelines and boundaries to consider. In the workshop, we will discuss how the ideas about math and technology have changed over the years as we have more understanding of brain development. Participants will have some experiences with math activities, and games, both through iPads and manipulatives.
