Description

UPDATE. This workshop is fully booked but a REPEAT PL is now available - click here to register.

A two-day interactive and practical workshop, this PL offers Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten educators an opportunity to: 
 
EXPLORE the big ideas and concepts within early mathematics. 
CONNECT with neuroscience and research that should underpin and inform our ways of supporting 3- to 5-year-old children’s learning. 
EXAMINE key pedagogical practices for early childhood math, linking these to the National Quality Standard, Early Years Learning Framework and WA Kindergarten Curriculum Guidelines.
AMPLIFY children’s mathematical thinking and learning across the Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten day in intentional, meaningful and responsive ways.  
 
This PL, facilitated by Rebecca Duncan, is spaced over two days in Terms 2 and 3, with an opportunity between sessions to try out ideas and reflect on their impact. 
 
As part of this workshop, participants will be provided with 'My Word Book: Mathematics' By Dr Paul Swan and David Dunstan.

Presenters

Rebecca Duncan (AISWA Staff)

Early Childhood Consultant

Rebecca Duncan holds a Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood Education) and 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 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 several 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). Rebecca's latest teacher resource, 'Journeys of Inquiry', is designed to highlight case studies of inquiry in early childhood and is scheduled for publication in 2018. 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.
