Listening to and watching a video with Gary Stager
posted back in week 4 of EDC3100 has provided some real food for thought as the speaker touched on many key points of learning for Early Childhood. He spoke of providing periods of uninterrupted play, of expecting students to achieve by providing them with time and opportunity to construct their learning and of aiming for the impossible.
I feel that so often we limit student learning by interrupting them for all sort of reasons such as time to eat, time to pack away, time to rest etc. etc. This video is 40 mins in length but worth every minute when it comes to clarifying what is important in creating the opportunity to learn new and exciting ways to construct knowledge.
