This online workshop is about helping educators to learn more about how children can engage playfully with multi-literacies.
I want more children to have their early experiences of literacy learning guided in playful and creative ways...
So that they will engage with the joy in this key foundational area of their education.
I have thought long and hard about the format of this workshop and how to best facilitate your learning.
I finally settled on a series of engaging components which are designed to work together seamlessly, providing you with the inspiration and confidence to try out some of these ideas and strategies and create your own.
The workshop is structured into four modules.
These modules are structured into four lessons each, plus a bonus lesson available at the end of the workshop.
All modules include videos, photographs, practical tips and ideas, texts, and professional learning engagements for you to take part in, as well as reflection questions.
The modules are peppered with insightful interviews and discussions between Rachel French, Director of Professional Learning International, Jayne de la Haye and myself.
Jayne is currently Junior School Principal of Kristin School in Auckland, New Zealand. She has had extensive experience as an early childhood teacher and leader in Europe, the Middle East and Asia.
