In my lifetime, there has never been a situation like we find ourselves in right now – where educators are separated from children and families because of a global pandemic. Neither educators or parents were prepared for the stresses and unknowns of how this would affect schools, families, and our children.
This mini e-course is for educators and parents of children in childcare, early learning and kindergarten programs who are supporting children’s learning at home. It offers a reflective look at how educators and parents can engage children in learning that motivates and inspires children and adults alike.
3Rs for Children’s Learning in a COVID-19 World are Reflect, Reassess, and Reimagine. This mini-course was inspired by the words of Deb Curtis and Lorrie Baird who, in Deb Curtis’s book Really Seeing Children, urge educators to see how the actions of our hands tell children how we see them. In this mini-e-course we explore how we can celebrate the ways we are able to touch children’s lives even in the midst of a global pandemic.
