Playful pedagogy: Strategies for teachers in children’s play
Duration: Approx. 45 min
“Children learn through play” is a phrase we hear often and one that the ECE sector almost universally believes in. As a result we see services with spaces, resources, equipment and toys available for children to use in their play. But where does this leave the teacher?

Literature tells us that thoughtful and deliberate involvement and intervention in children’s play can positively impact learner outcomes. In fact the teacher is the most important resource for the child’s learning. In order to make a real difference in children’s learning teachers need to be intentional in the actions that they take and the decisions that they make.

The thoughtful, intentional teacher can:
  • Recognise when to intervene in play
  • Use the most effective strategies to promote learning in play
  • Draw on assessment information and tailor responses to progress learning in the moment

Join Bridgit for a thought-provoking webinar centred on enacting your role as a teacher in ways that will excite and stimulate your thinking and improve learning outcomes for children.
