Making Sense of 'Intentional Teaching'

Making Sense of ‘Intentional Teaching’ seeks to support educators to explore intentional teaching by breaking down the terminology into everyday language to support practical implementation of these skills.

Provocations on Assessment in Early Childhood

Provocations on Assessment in Early Childhood is a complementary resource to Making Sense of ‘Intentional Teaching’. This resource supports educators to further investigate and engage with assessment and the Early Years Learning Framework.

Pathways of possibilities to engaging with the EYLF

A unique narrative on establishing curriculum community and exploring the concepts of the EYLF written by Miriam Giugni in collaboration with a team of educators.

Unravelling the Essence of the Early Years Learning Framework

This resource has been created by educators in NSW exploring the Early Years Learning Framework during the professional development sessions of: Belonging, Being and Becoming: Putting the Early Years Learning Framework into Practice. During these sessions, educators collaborated on the meanings of the key words of Belonging, Being and Becoming and discussed the five outcomes from their personal perspectives. These ideas and perspectives have been collated to support all educators to unravel the words of the Early Years Learning Framework.

What's Pedagogy Anyway?

Pedagogical documentation is a term that is used to describe a process of gathering artefacts, conversations, ideas, and displaying children’s learning, energy and theories. This resource attempts to challenge us all to refrain from creating a ‘one-size-fits all approach" when it comes to documenting teaching and learning. It suggests that we must ‘think and act critically’ when exploring the role of pedagogical documentation in early years education.

My Time, Our Place Team Meeting Package

The My Time, Our Place Team Meeting Package is a useful approach to helping middle childhood educators reflect upon My Time, Our Place, Framework For School Age Care In Australia, within the Out of School Hours Care setting. Key to successful implementation is the engagement of all educators and the leadership role taken by management and coordination teams.

This package provides a plan for looking at the framework within team meetings. This is not a formula or recipe for unpacking the framework - look upon it as some support for ongoing professional learning within the service.

The package is appropriate for middle childhood educators in all Out of School Hours Care Services and can be used by Family Day Care educators and Family Day Care Coordination Units.
