Finally, educators with effective communication skills prove an ability to adapt teaching methods to suit the needs of students they are supporting (Kearns, 2012), and with appropriate delivery of good communication, student learning increases. When delivering student education, acquiring effective communication skills involving the delivery of high written and verbal skills, and literacy development is essential for teachers to aid children’s needs for learning, as this assists to prove social and cognitive development for children when the teacher collaborates towards educating children. Good communication skills from early childhood educators ensure children’s skills are enhanced when
Public school may sound more appealing because their education is basically free, but some people also appeal to the flexibility of online school. Not everyone learns the same way, so this is why there are different methods of education available. Online school and public school are different in their setting, approach, and impact on the students. These differences can either obstruct or improve a student’s way of learning and developing. The fact that school is solely done online is the main observation that distinguishes an online school from a public school.
Good communication with parents and caregivers can build support for and strengthen the important work that you are doing in the classroom. The more you know about children's academic, social, and emotional development, the more able you will be to meet their needs. Information about how well the children are progressing helps you to plan your teaching. You want the children in your care to feel successful and confident, but you also want to offer experiences that will help them to develop further. In addition, through initial screening and by checking the children's progress, you can identify those children who need special help or who face extra
EARLY CHILDHOOD PEDAGOGY The term pedagogy refers to the holistic nature of early childhood educators’ professional practice (especially those aspects that involve building and nurturing relationships), curriculum decision-making, teaching and learning. When educators establish respectful and caring relationships with children and families, they are able to work together to construct curriculum and learning experiences relevant to children in their local context. These experiences gradually expand children’s knowledge and understanding of the world. Educators’ professional judgements are central to their active role in facilitating children’s learning. In making professional judgements, they weave together their: • professional knowledge and skills • knowledge of children, families and communities • awareness of how their beliefs and values impact on children’s learning • personal styles and past experiences.
Online courses allow adults the flexibility to log in to their college course from any location. While attending an online course, you are required to do some type of discussion. During an online course, your access to and interaction with your teacher tends to be harder than during a classroom course. Online courses require you to be disciplined when it comes to completing assignments, studying, and contributing to classroom discussions. Classroom college courses tend to be easier for people that need a set schedule.
help each child enjoy their learning and make progress towards the early learning goals. provide a balance of adult led and child led activities that help children to think critically, play and explore and be active and creative learners. have good expectations for children and enthuse and motivate them. plan for individual children, taking into account their culture and background, including any children with special educational needs and/or disabilities, those learning English as an additional language and those who achieve beyond what is expected to ensure that you are offering an inclusive service and that each child receives an enjoyable and challenging experience across all areas of learning. support each child in their learning and work with parents and carers as partners in children’s learning and development.
Another key factor in choosing online learning is the ability to learn in your own comfortable environment (Park, 2009). By studying at home, a person can speak out in class discussions without the fear of embarrassment. This is helpful for those who are predominately shy in classroom settings. It may also help those who have confidence issues due to weight or looks. Online colleges allow us to be who we are on the inside and show what we know without the altered perceptions brought on by our appearance.
Creating Learning Centers and Increasing Parental Involvement Laura Chapman March 9, 2009 Creating Learning Centers Children learn best when actively engaged in hands-on experiences that have personal relevance. High quality early childhood programs support the way children learn best by providing classrooms that are organized in learning centers rich with hands-on materials. Learning centers allow children to make choices about their activities, which encourages a developing sense of independence and an intrinsic motivation to learn (Pattillo, 1992, p 12). According to early childhood theorist Lev Vygotsky, children use language to organize their thinking (Follari, 2007, p 38). Language development is encouraged by learning centers as children verbalize their activities and interact with peers.
