Observing and Documenting Children’s Development and Learning

Participants will be adept at using research-based observation techniques and tools to enhance their teaching practices, ensure children’s learning, identify areas needing support, and effectively communicate these insights to families.

Being intentional about observation is critical to a successful program for young children. Teachers need to hone their lens for “kid watching” so that they are able plan appropriate experiences, ensure children are learning and identify where they may need more support. This workshop will explore the research and best practices for observing young children, using video clips to apply new learning. We will also review various methods and tools to make this routine easier and more intentional. Finally we will discover ways to share this information with families so that they too can encourage the learning.
