Unit 82 promote creativity and creative learning in young children 1. Understand the concepts of creativity and creative learning and how these affect all aspects of young children’s learning and development. 1.1. Analyse the differences between creative learning and creativity. Creative learning is about helping children develop imaginative thinking through an exploration of materials, objects and problem-solving skills, such as construction and ICT and crafts.
How to monitor children and young people's development and interventions that should take place if this is not following the expected pattern. There are a number of ways to monitor children, observation methods are: check lists, are popular because they are easy to use they can focus on a particular aspect of child development. the observer either watches the child as they play or asks the child to do something like hop on one foot if the child can do it then the observer ticks the box. Events record, this is to look at when unwanted behaviour is used be a child, a prepared sheet of paper is drawn up before hand with the type of information that needs to be collected a column for each piece of information, when the behaviour is seen. time sampling, time sampling is done over a morning or afternoon it allows the observer to gain a better picture of the child.
Developmentally Appropriate: This activity is developmentally appropriate because it develop the fine motor skills and the sense of touch. Children enjoy learning while exploring sensory materials. RC II-2 Language and Literacy Title: Story time Age: 3-5 Materials: Book (Abiyoyo) Description: While
CCLD MU 5.3; Lead Practice that Support Positive Outcomes for Child and Young Person Development 1.1Explain different theories and frameworks of child and young person development Piaget Piaget’s theories allow us to take the idea of ‘schema’ into practice and use it to effectively plan for the development of a child. Using these ‘schema’ and Piaget’s stages (sensorimeter, preoperational, concrete operational, formal operational) we can assess where and how a child is currently learning, and plan activities and observations to help them develop into the next stages. High Scope The High Scope theory approach supports children’s learning through play. It helps children to develop their self-esteem, confidence and language. It encourages children to learn at their own level that they feel comfortable and confident with, therefore enhancing the opportunity for developing many social and intellectual skills.
Socialisation is a very important part of childhood, as it benefits us throughout life. There will be an in-depth look at socialisation and can gain an understanding of how students learn, children’s physical, social and intellectual development, and how culture and other factors impact on teaching strategies. An in-depth look into socialisation and its aims, the key agents of socialisation, methods which are based on theoretical understandings which support socialisation and how socialisation impacts on child development and learning. Until recently, socialisation research was primarily fixated on the result of influences which were outside of the child or influences on the inside of the child. These could have included the influence of a prominent adult figure or unconscious motives.
The most important role that play can have is to help children to be active, make choices and practice actions to mastery. They should have experience with a wide variety of content (art, music, language, science, math, social relations) because each is important for the development of a complex and integrated brain. Play that links sensori-motor, cognitive, and social-emotional experiences provides an ideal setting from brain development. According to Montessori, the essential dimensions of play are: Voluntary, enjoyable, purposeful and spontaneous Creativity expanded using problem solving skills, social skills, language skills and physical skills Helps expand on new ideas Helps the child to adapt socially Helps to thwart emotional problems If play is the work of the child, toys are the tools. Through toys, children learn about their world, themselves, and others.
C8- Analyse the importance of play in children’s learning, giving reasons why play should be included in planning. It is important to include play in a child’s learning and experience, this is because it enables them to explore and learn new things independently and through a way in which they understand. From play they are able to express their feelings and thoughts on the subject through interpreting the situation, events, or experience they’ve seen. It’s a good way of allowing children their own space to make choices of what, when, and who they play with, giving them many opportunities to build on relationships which is a good aspect in enhancing their communication skills and ability to work with others and co-operate efficiently. Play is a ‘’free flow’’ experience which enables a child to progress at their own pace.
In terms of its graphical and visual capabilities, the game looks simply photorealistic. In addition, video games also provide intriguing and exciting plots require problem-solving abilities and can improve a person's awareness. Some of the mental skills enhanced by video games include: following instructions, logically solving problems, hand-eye coordination, planning and resource management, tracking of multiple shifting variables and accuracy. These are only a few of many mental skills enhanced by video games according to cognitive researcher Daphne Bavalier and other authors specialising in raising a "smart" child. There are many benefits in playing video games, however, there are two that can be considered most beneficial when playing video games: they reduce stress and they promote exercise on the mind.
Extracurricular activities are activities performed by students that fall outside the area of the normal curriculum of school. What are some remarkable benefits of these activities? How do extracurricular activities affect children? The purpose of this essay is to discuss some positive effects of extra-curricular activities on child development; the three most important of which are influences on physical development, mental state and social skills. First, extra–curricular activities offer some significant benefits to children on physical development.
Importance in the Brain 1 Understanding the human brain and how it develops could further our theory on how children develop. The brain is very complex and there have been multiple tests on how the brain works which would give answers to how children think, raised and developed. Knowing how long the brain takes to develop will also give a hint of reasoning on why children conduct wrong and correct decisions. Parents around the world want to raise their children in a correct manner, making the knowledge of the brain very important. If parents knew what power the brain possessed then the guidance for there child would insure simplicity with the process of development.
