The Early Childhood Educators of BC and Red River College are offering another online workshop. The workshop content (videos, links, games, discussions) is completely online and available to participants during the duration of the workshop. Participants have complete flexibility to work through the materials at times that are the most convenient to them. The content is from the Science of Early Childhood Development (SECD). SECD’s engaging, multi media resources are used around the world by people who want to learn more about the impact of the early years on lifelong health and well-being.
Participants will watch videos of children from around the world, hear from experts discussing the topics, do short readings and play interactive review games. Participants will also ‘meet’ in online discussions led by a facilitator, to hear each other’s ideas, and reflect on and apply what they learn.
Topics include, active play, outdoor play, rough and tumble and risky play, the role of self regulation, the value of play for learning and development, and setting the stage for play.
The workshop is equivalent to six hours of professional development.
N.B. Participants should have a reliable internet connection and be comfortable reading and writing in English.
