Considering the work of key pioneers and current experts with links to child development theory. There are many theories about how children learn and develop. This area of study is called developmental psychology which covers subjects such as cognitive, language and emotional development. The research methods are based heavily on the on going assessments carried out by observing children over a period of time. Assessment is part of the process of understanding what children know, understand and can do so that future teaching steps can be appropriately planned.
Their conversations/interactions with children Adult’s interaction with children plays a very important role in children’s learning and development Listen and give them the time they need to answer. Gives children feedback on what they are doing, whenever possible encourage children to solve problems for themselves. Celebrates their progress and achievements, and helps them to learn from mistakes, use encouragement as well as praise. Adults should not make statements that evaluate or judge .instead make objective, specific comments that encourage children to expand their descriptive language and think about what they are doing. Make it a playful atmosphere, in which both adult and child are enjoying the time spent together; Adults.
E1) Collate evidence which describes the role of the practitioner in meeting children’s learning needs. The role of the practitioner when meeting children’s learning needs are too collect, learn and understand the information which they need to know, information they need to know is: • What is play • The benefits of play • What is experienced when playing? • Relationships between play and learning • Stages of play and play types Influences on play (Which are) • Social influences • Economic influences • Physical influences • Physiological influences • National initiatives • Local initiatives • Theorists which influence play Observation • Observation which informs planning • Observation which informs practice • Observations when planning activities to promote children’s learning and development • Recording assessment • Role of assessment in informing planning and responding to learning needs • Key issues in recording assessment Working with others • Outside agencies • How outside agencies contribute in settings. • Inclusiveness with parents/guardians and why it is important. • Importance of including parents/guardians in planning.
Through doing this and practising the skills that they have learned the children will be able to take ownership of their learning and be able to apply it in different situations. To provide high-quality experiences for young children we should aim for a balance of one-third adult-directed activities and one-third child-initiated activities. The other third of the time should ideally be taken up by child-initiated activities that are then picked up on and supported by an adult – these are opportunities for ‘sustained shared thinking’ to take place. Children learn through first-hand experiances and activities with the serious business of ‘play’ providing the vehicle. Through their play children practise and consolidate their learning, play with ideas, experiment, take risks, solve problems, and make decisions… First-hand experiences allow children to develop an understanding of themselves and the world in which they live.
A learning support practitioner will also be required to provide the teacher with feedback of the activity and the child's performance , so the practitioners should arrange with the teacher beforehand how they should be providing the feedback. During the delivery of an activity, practitioners should be setting clear expectation and instructions. They may recognise that children are struggling or not understanding what they are asking them to do ; if this is the case practitioners should modify their delivery or the activity itself , in order for every child to take part. During the activity practitioners should be monitoring and observing in order to provide the teacher with feedback. A learning support practitioner will also contribute towards the
Unit 7 E1 Collate evidence which describes the role of the practitioner in meeting children’s learning needs. Gather and present information about the role of the practitioner when children’s learning needs. A practitioners role in meeting children’s learning needs are to understand and work with all children to meet each individuals learning needs. One way practitioners can do this is providing different opportunities for individual children who is unique and may learn differently to others around them. Part of The practitioner’s role would e to plan and use resources for the environment to help ring challenges to children to help them with different areas of their learning development.
NAEYC Codes of Ethics Core Values *Appreciate childhood as a unique and valuable stage of the human life. Appreciating childhood could affect teaching in the classroom because you would know how to teach them better. I think that you would also be able to come up with more developmentally appropriate activities for the children. *Base our work on knowledge of how children develop and learn. By basing knowledge on how children develop and learn, it can help make more developmentally appropriate activities.
FMSC 332: Children in Families Section 0301 s: h to adolescence. You will learn about the basic principles of child development and explore how the social world in which children and adolescents interact (e.g., parents, family, school, community, government, media, and cultural) influence learning, growth, and development. You will learn to apply these course concepts to practical and contemporary issues affecting children and families today. Course Learning Objectives: Upon completing this course, the student will be able to: 1. Identify context and theoretical frameworks to understand the developing child.
Playing and learning in children’s education E1/A In (appendices 1), the Nursery World article written by Fisher. J (2012) talks about how the role of the practitioner should plan for a balance between adult –led learning and child –led learning. This means that the adult needs to observe children closely to see how they are developing. When the practitioner stands back during child-led play, they can gain lots of information about a child, how they use their environments and resources. This helps to meet their learning needs if the practitioner then uses this information to plan the next steps.
