INSPIRE 2025: Early Bird Registrations Now Open

Planning outside the boxes – what does this look like?

Unpacking 'the golden rule' when planning for children’s learning— ‘follow up the thinking, not the activities…’ Presented by Philip Butler

Description

As a community of learners, we will unpack 'the golden rule' when planning for children’s learning— ‘follow up the thinking, not the activities…’

Our focus is the thought processes and ideas behind the activities rather than the activities themselves. Together, we will examine the planning cycle and how we can ensure high-quality outcomes by tailoring the learning experiences to the child's interests, passions and needs. When we plan like this, the plan tends to flow naturally as there are limitless possibilities and opportunities beyond what is listed in the frameworks. Let's discuss: 

Provocations:

  • How do you use the VEYLDF Learning Outcomes? Do you view them as a guide or a template/checklist for planning?

  • How can we involve children in the planning and learning process to better meet their needs and interests? 

Completing Planning outside the boxes - what does this look like may contribute one hour of PD that aligns with the NESA (NSW) criteria for Elective PD and addresses:

The Australian Professionals Standards for Teachers: APST 3: Plan for and implement effective teaching and learning

Early Years Learning Framework Learning Outcomes: Outcome 4: Children are confident and involved learners
