Description

AISWA Early Childhood offers a range of network hubs across the metro area. For early childhood educators in REGIONAL and REMOTE areas, we are pleased to offer an online network, which aims to support educators outside the metro area to remain connected to one another, and to professional learning about key understandings in early childhood education.

Term 2 Online Network Meeting 
'Fostering Growth Mindsets in Early Childhood' 

What is a growth mindset and why might it be important to foster in Early Childhood? How might educators play in helping children develop growth mindsets and positive learning habits? In readiness for this session, registered participants will receive an e-copy of the book ‘Mindset Matters’, by Dr Fiona Boylan, from which there will be some pre-reading to complete prior. During this network meeting, we will come together to discuss key ideas around mindset theory and to reflect on implications for our own practice.

Early Childhood Consultant
Rebecca Duncan<span>(AISWA Staff)</span>

Rebecca Duncan has been working in education since 1998. Along with teaching experience in each year level across Kindergarten to Year 4, her roles have included Coordinator of the Learning Development Centre at Christ Church Grammar Preparatory School as well as leadership in the integration of learning technologies. In 2004, Rebecca was the recipient of a National Excellence in Teaching Award (NEiTA) for Western Australia, in recognition of her work in the promotion of early literacy practice at All Saints’ College.

Rebecca has been with AISWA since late 2010, when she was contracted to write a resource to support educators in their implementation of the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF). This project culminated in the publication of the acclaimed book, 'Early Years Learning Framework: In Action'. Ongoing employment as a consultant for AISWA followed, initially in the Curriculum, then Literacy teams, interspersed by the births of her three children. Rebecca now works for AISWA in a part-time capacity and thoroughly enjoys her role as a consultant within the early childhood team. She has lead numerous projects at AISWA, including initiatives to connect the Australian Curriculum and EYLF, one of which lead to AISWA’s publication of 'Playing with the Australian Curriculum' (2013). Her teacher resource, 'Journeys of Inquiry', was published in 2018, highlighting case studies of inquiry in early childhood. This has now been accompanied by a second volume of inspiring stories of inquiry pedagogies in 'Further Journeys of Inquiry', which was published by AISWA in 2020. Rebecca's latest publication for AISWA, 'Playful STEM: Using Blocks in Kindergarten to Year 2' is due for distribution in 2021. Inquiry pedagogies, early literacy and numeracy, learning through play, integrative approaches, responsiveness to children, learning technologies, and the Early Years Learning Framework represent a few of Rebecca’s areas of specialty.
