This amazing Day with Kelly Goodsir will explore the below two topics:
DOCUMENTATION WITH CHILDREN
Too often we leave children out of the equation when it comes to assessment and too often, we rush to formalise documentation. What if documentation was an everyday practice that supported children's expression of their working ideas, thinking and theories? This session will explore what it means to document children's perspective and make their ideas visible in ways that synthesis and give opportunities for reflection and ongoing inquiry.
Leaders who walk beside others as they coach and influence not only enhance educator’s individual skills but also build cultures of learning through partnership. We learn best when we are in dialogue with others, questioning and problem solving as a collaboration. This context invites a deeper willingness to rethink, unlearn and relearn. How might we slow down and weave the threads of coaching into our leadership practice so that we gain more depth and breadth in our capacity as a team.
