Workshop 10: Infants & Toddlers: Capturing the Scientist within

Infants and toddlers are born scientists - they are led by a drive and curiosity to make sense of their world, testing and retesting ideas and theories. Much rich learning that takes place in this time, much stemming from the most ordinary of moments. So how do we make this learning visible? And how do we advocate for this valuable learning? Learning Stories are a great way of sharing the journey of these intrepid investigators. We will look at some examples of infants and toddlers in action, and how to make this learning visible through Learning Stories.


Personal bio

I have always been curious about making sense of my world and am constantly in awe of the way infants and toddlers are driven to do the same. I have been writing Learning Stories to capture this valuable learning for infants and toddlers for a number of years now. I have been working with ELP for three years, and continue to practice as a teacher of infants and toddlers.
