Conference Topic:

Provocations for Learning

Play is the best way for a young child to learn. In the early years of a child’s life the way they learn to play, the resources they play with and the kind of engagement they ‘step’ into will contribute enormously to their development.

Environments should provide a place where children have opportunities to explore, learn and develop with the support of sensitive, knowledgeable adults. There should be access to prompts, artefacts and provocations to stimulate ideas and thought journeys.

Every child’s learning journey should be unique. How do we encourage, support and allow an individual learning journey for each child, while ensuring all are engaged in meaningful opportunities and that child development is considered?

There will be a range of exciting and innovative ideas to be explored that will allow delegates to:
- Consider possibilities of enhancing their space to ensure core curriculum is exciting and engaging
- Explore a range of contexts which will stimulate creative thinking
- Identify the ‘provocations’ they could use to involve children in breadth and depth of experience and rich higher order thinking
