Deeper Documentation: A tool for understanding young children’s learning.

Project based learning is not a new approach to engaging students but when applied with current understandings about conceptual understanding and design thinking, it is newly important and powerful.


Workshop Seven: Differentiation: Attending to Needs

Workshop Leaders: Andrea Muller & Tania Lattanzio

‘I like this class because there’s something different going on all the time. This class, it’s like my teacher really knows how to cook. It’s like she runs a really good restaurant with a big menu and all.’ This workshop will provide a tool-kit of approaches and strategies for building differentiated learning environments.



Workshop Eight: Think, Move, Learn: Physical Education, Creativity and Inquiring Minds

Workshop Leaders: Jane Mycroft and Ben Hart

This workshop will identify the benefits of utilising creative approaches to ensure that students think, move and learn through inquiry driven PE.

Workshop Leader: Anne van Dam

This workshop will explore play as young children’s primary tool to learn about the world and their place in it. We will explore how children built and express their theories about the world, the importance of relationships, listening and children’s agency.
