          Instructivism versus Constructivism Sometimes it feels like we hear conflicting messages regarding the teacher's role. There seem to be fads and pendulum swings about the nature of teachers' work and their role in the learning process. In this video Dr Julia Atkin helps clarify what the role of the teacher is really about -- if being intentional and responsive about the learning and the learners' needs. This is a useful discussion video for PLCs or to use with the community.

                Reflective Questions

                • How does your context shape meaning?
                • In your educational place what stands out as children’s early words and texts in their lives?
                • How do you engage with children’s voices to know and understand the significance of these words and texts to children and their families and communities? What do you need to focus on to improve?

                Children’s literacies can be many: Thinking broadly about children’s literacy engagement

                Reflective Questions
                • What is literacy in your context?
                • What do you choose to recognise and value as literacy?
                • How do you design challenging learning that acknowledges children’s home lives and understandings? How might you make this more effective in future?

                Reflective Questions

                • How do you document and make visible children’s learning? Which of your processes need critical reflection for improvement?
                • How do you use the preschool literacy indicators to analyse children’s learning? How will you ensure a stronger analysis of learning, rather than doing?
                • How do you use your documentation to plan for, assess and foster children’s literacy growth? How will you plan for ongoing improvement?

                      The Learning Challenge with James Nottingham

                      The Learning Challenge is one way to explain why more challenge leads to enhanced learning. It helps teachers structure lessons, and students challenge themselves. Created by James Nottingham (@JamesNottinghm), the Learning Challenge uses the idea of a "pit," first used by Butler & Edwards. More background information, a full description, & lesson resources can be found in Challenging Learning (2010).
