The revised Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework: Supporting the cycle of teaching and learning through the early years
In this webinar, the focus will be on formative assessment children’s mathematical thinking to support the cycle of teaching and learning. Children demonstrate mathematical thinking in diverse ways. This requires early childhood educators to recognise this thinking when it is demonstrated and to develop playful learning experiences for children to consolidate and extend their thinking. High quality interactions with children create opportunities for educators to provide feedback that extends children’s learning, to model mathematical language and to encourage children to articulate their thinking. This in turn provides opportunities for further planning, and thus the cycle of teaching and learning continues. Finally, by demonstrating how the VEYLDF intersects with the Victorian Curriculum, the revised framework supports smooth transitions for every child from the home learning environment, into early childhood education and care settings, and into school.
