Workshop Description

Come to Nature Play HQ at Wittunga House for the Supporting Children’s Development Through Playful Pedagogies (Applying the Australian Early Development Census) workshops. Maria Taylor and colleagues from Nature Play SA, with Dr Amy Farndale from UniSA, will provide provocations where educators can apply knowledge of the AEDC domains to their understanding of children, childhood and emergent literacy and numeracy in playful and play-based settings. Educators reflect upon the AITSL Professional Standards for Teachers in this work and consider how pedagogical documentation may illustrate their co-constructed work with children and families, as they seek deeper engagement in learning experiences which build child efficacy and capacity, informed by knowledge of the AEDC developmental domains.
