Learning Stories that bridge the gap
Wednesday 8 August, 2:00pm - 4:00pm - Wigram Base, 14 Henry Wigram Drive
This workshop discusses the use of Learning Stories to support transitions between early childhood and primary school. The aim of the workshop is to create water thinkers. Water thinkers don’t care about the rocks they find ways to move around them - they see the possibilities to move between the gaps. What are the barriers (rocks) and what are the possibilities (gaps) to creating continuity of learning for children as they transition from early childhood to primary school? We will focus on what assessment documentation that supports children to not only transition well but to have continuity of learning, creating seamless education. What is working, what does research say and more importantly what can we do to support our children’s continuity of learning.
